Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infection (CLABSI)


CLABSI Dashboard

What is it?
A central line-associated bloodstream infection is a blood infection caused by germs entering the body through a flexible line placed in the patient’s vein or artery to deliver medicine and provide other treatments. Patients with this device are at high risk for developing dangerous bloodstream infections.

How's it measured?
The rate is per 1,000 central line days. Central line days are calculated by dividing the number of CLABSIs by the number of central line days and multiplying the result by 1,000.
