1-2-3 Supportive Care Practices to Reduce Blood Stream Infections

Date: April 20, 2017
Filed under: Quality Academy, Improvement Project


Project description:

Supportive care practices such as bathing, oral care and mobilization are not only foundational but also key to reducing central line associated blood stream infections (CLABSIs), yet compliance with these practices can be inconsistent and processes are not formalized.

The aim of the 1-2-3 project is to increase compliance with supportive care practices (bathing 1x/day, oral care 2x/day & mobilization 3x/day) to 80% by June 1, 2018.
