44 Illinois Hospital ICUs Reported Zero CLABSIs Last Year

FierceHealthcare reported that 44 Illinois hospital ICUs reported zero central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) last year, all of which used a checklist strategy created by Peter Pronovost and adopted by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement. The organizations are part of a 52-hospital collaborative that aims to eliminate CLABSIs in ICUs.  The collaborative, "On the CUSP: Stop BSI,"  features the work of INQRI grantees David Thompson and Jill Marsteller.
