• Central Line Associated Bloodstream Infections are a significant course of mortality and morbidity for pediatric patients.
• The three most common sources of contamination that lead to healthcare associated infection include the contaminated hands of the healthcare professional and the patient, the contaminated environmental surfaces, and the contaminated skin of the patient.
• Skin Antisepsis, hand hygiene, and environmental surface disinfection can reduce the risk for microorganism transfer and acquisition of healthcare associated infections
Infection prevention and control is a core element of patient safety and in the reduction of central line-associated bloodstream infections. These deadly infections can cause a mortality rate of approximately 12%-25% in inpatient populations. Bloodstream infections can in many cases be prevented through the adoption of evidence-based standards from organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Association for Vascular Access. Vascular access professionals play a critical role in infection prevention in patient care by practicing frequent hand hygiene, maintaining a clean and sanitary clinical environment of care, and performing proper skin antisepsis before the insertion of a vascular access catheter. Each of these interventions contributes to the overall goal of eliminating central line-associated bloodstream infections in these very vulnerable patients.
