• Patients with short bowel syndrome are vulnerable to central line–associated bloodstream infections.
• A pediatric hospital addressed the problem with a multipronged initiative.
• One intervention proved redundant, but 3 were associated with reduced central line–associated bloodstream infections.
• A disinfection cap and scrubbing intravenous lines with chlorhexidine gluconate were crucial interventions.
• A hospital-designed protective vest prevented catheter displacement.
A specialized pediatric hospital serves many patients with short bowel syndrome. The patients' fecal residue plus frequent access of intravenous lines increases bloodstream infection (BSI) risk. To reduce BSIs, the hospital first implemented an alcohol-dispensing disinfection cap and then added 3 more interventions, with both the cap-only phase and the multipronged phase successfully lowering the hospital's BSI rate.
