OBJECTIVE To evaluate the accuracy of weekly sampling of central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) denominator data to estimate central line-days (CLDs). DESIGN Obtained CLABSI denominator logs showing daily counts of patient-days and CLD for 6-12 consecutive months from participants and CLABSI numerators and facility and location characteristics from the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN). SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS Convenience sample of 119 inpatient locations in 63… CONTINUE READING
