Thirty-two outpatient hemodialysis providers in the United States voluntarily reported 3699 adverse events to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) during 2006. [...] Key Result The pooled mean rates of hospitalization among patients with arteriovenous fistulas, grafts, permanent and temporary central venous catheters were 7.7, 9.2, 15.7, and 34.7 per 100 patient-months, respectively.Expand
Surveillance of dialysis events: 12-month experience at five outpatient adult hemodialysis centers in Kuwait.
TLDR
Surveillance of DE rates in Kuwait revealed significantly lower mean rate of hospitalization and positive blood culture while IV antimicrobial start shows significantly higher mean rate when compared to published NHSN data. Expand
National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) Dialysis Event Surveillance Report for 2014.
TLDR
Rates of infection and other dialysis events were highest among patients with a central venous catheter compared with other vascular access types, and surveillance data can help define the epidemiology of important infections in this patient population. Expand
Can the NHSN dialysis event protocol be implemented in an Irish dialysis unit
TLDR
The feasibility of establishing and maintaining the National Healthcare Safety Network dialysis event protocol is examined, though dependent on multidisciplinary dialysis staff involvement & ownership and the presence of a surveillance coordinator, and on-going surveillance is feasible. Expand
Surveillance of Dialysis Events: one-year experience at 33 outpatient hemodialysis centers in China
TLDR
The surveillance revealed a relatively low incidence of dialysis events and the surveillance may be tailored to target those using central lines in resource-limited settings. Expand
Higher Access‐Associated Bacteremia but Less Hospitalization Among Saudi Compared with US Hemodialysis Outpatients
TLDR
A prospective surveillance study for all end‐stage kidney disease patients served by the hemodialysis unit at King Abdulaziz Medical City in Riyadh, SA, between May 2008 and December 2009 found that KAMC had 2–4 times higher rates of access‐associated bacteremia and antimicrobial start as well as a higher catheter prevalence. Expand
Epidemiology of healthcare-associated infections among patients from a hemodialysis unit in southeastern Brazil.
TLDR
The data point out to the usefulness of applying methods commonly used in hospital-based surveillance for hemodialysis units to provide a wide overview of HAI epidemiology in a he modialysis unit in southeastern Brazil. Expand
National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) Report, data summary for 2010, device-associated module.
TLDR
This report updates previously published DA Module data from the NHSN and provides contemporary comparative rates, including national and state-specific reports of standardized infection ratios for select health care-associated infections (HAIs). Expand
UK Renal Registry 11th Annual Report (December 2008): Chapter 12 Epidemiology of Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus bacteraemia amongst patients receiving Renal Replacement Therapy in England in 2007
TLDR
The rate of MRSA bacteraemia is falling substantially within the prevalent dialysis population, but with variation in performance between centres, compared to previous Registry reports. Expand
Public Health Surveillance in the Dialysis Setting: Opportunities and Challenges for Using Electronic Health Records
TLDR
Systematic, ongoing validation efforts will be vital to ensure that reported data are accurate, permit valid comparisons of facility performance, and effectively support improved outcomes for dialysis patients. Expand
National Healthcare Safety Network report, data summary for 2011, device-associated module.
This report is a summary of Device-associated (DA) Module data collected by hospitals participating in the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) for events occurring from January through DecemberExpand

Electronic reporting of infections associated with hemodialysis.
TLDR
Infection-related adverse events remain lowest among patients with vascular access in the form of fistulas and grafts and the new, Web-based, NHSN surveillance system allows centers to monitor their rates and compare with other outpatient dialysis centers. Expand

Standardized Surveillance of Hemodialysis Vascular Access Infections 18-Month Experience at an Outpatient, Multifacility Hemodialysis Center
TLDR
This represents the first report of extensive incidence data on hemodialysis vascular access infections and represents a standardized surveillance and data-collection system that could be implemented in hemodIALysis facilities to allow for reliable data comparison and benchmarking. Expand
Description of a New Surveillance System for Bloodstream and Vascular Access Infections in Outpatient Hemodialysis Centers
TLDR
A new voluntary national surveillance system for dialysis centers will provide a simple and standardized method for recording data, calculating rates, and comparing rates over time, and it is hoped that collection and examination of these data will lead to quality improvement measures. Expand

Reducing dialysis associated bacteraemia, and recommendations for surveillance in the United Kingdom: prospective study
TLDR
Dialysis specific surveillance of bacteraemia is critical to infection control in dialysis units and improving quality of care, and such a scheme could be adopted across the United Kingdom. Expand
Bloodstream Infections in Hemodialysis Patients: Getting Some Deserved Attention
  • J. Tokars
  • Medicine
  • Infection Control & Hospital Epidemiology
  • 2002
TLDR
This issue of Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology contains three studies that focus some deserved attention on surveillance and prevention of BSI in hemodialysis patients and despite differing definitions and surveillance methods, the reported BSI rates from these 4 surveillance studies are remarkably similar.
