Three U.S. Hospitals Reduce Costly Catheter-Related Bloodstream Infections
Date:9/27/2010

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Clinicians from three U.S. hospitals today reported significant progress in the fight against deadly IV catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSI). Data analyzed and presented by clinicians from St. Joseph's Mercy Hospital in Hot Springs, Ark.; Bethesda North Hospital in Cincinnati; and the VA Medical Center in Seattle showed that the hospitals virtually eliminated such infections, which annually kill some 62,500 hospital patients nationwide.
