CLABSI is a significant contributor to morbidity and mortality for infants in NICUs because of these patients have immature immune systems. This Progress Report on the National On the CUSP: Stop BSI Project, Neonatal CLABSI Prevention provides an overview of the project's accomplishments to date and discusses the project's next steps.
