- Data from 260
adult non-ICUs were examined.
- CLABSI rates
reduced from 1.660 at baseline to 0.972 at quarter six, a relative reduction of
intervention was tailored to adult ICUs, other hospital units that stood to
benefit from participating in the intervention were encouraged to register. A
total of 303 adult non-ICUs reported at least one data point. Units that
formally withdrew were excluded (n=41)4,
and units that never reported post-baseline data were excluded (n=2), resulting
in a final analytic sample of 260 units. One unit did not report data between
quarter one and quarter six but did report during quarter seven and eight. On
average, units had less than one missing post-baseline quarter worth of data
(mean=0.68; stdev=1.37; median=0).

CLABSI rates over time can be found in Figure
13. Table 7 illustrates the number of units reporting for each time
period. Figure 14 illustrates the percentage of units
reporting a rate of zero (shown in dark blue) or less than one (shown in light
blue) during each time period. At baseline 61 percent of units reported a rate
of zero. By quarter six, this percentage had increased to 81 percent of units
reporting a rate of zero. Summary results for all adult non-ICUs can be found
in Table 8.

formally withdrew but had not submitted any data. For details regarding project
