Abstract

A team of the frontline nursing staff was assembled to work on central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs). This team used Lean methodology to identify issues related to central line care and maintenance and then developed countermeasures to systematically eliminate these issues. Since supplies was noted as the number one concern, the team worked to create all-inclusive central line dressing kits. These kits created a standard for dressing changes, leading to a significant decrease in CLABSI rates at a level 1 trauma center.
