Preventing Infections in Hospitalized Patients: Robin Betts, RN , MBA-HM, Assistant Vice President of Quality & Patient Safety at Intermountain Healthcare, made a commitment to reduce Catheter Line Associated Blood Stream Infections (CLABSI) at Intermountain – a 22-hospital system. With a target goal of reducing Intermountain's CLABSI rate from 1.71 per 1,000 central line days and 1.25 baseline rate from 2012 to 1.06 during the third quarter of 2013, Betts is hopeful that this overall 38% reduction will positively impact (directly or indirectly) over 140,000 patients. "Blood stream infections from catheter lines pose terrible complications and danger for patients," said Betts. "They increase the intensity of care, length of stay, cost of care, and patient exposure to unnecessary antibiotic therapy. Preventing infections in hospitalized patients is a national priority and aligns with the objectives of the Patient Safety, Science & Technology Summit to create a healing environment free of harm."
