5 Teams normally represent a single unit, but some teams include personnel from multiple units.
6 The term "Community Hospitals in State" reflects those hospitals defined as "Community Hospitals" in the American Hospital Association (AHA) Annual Survey and refers to all nonfederal, short-term and long-term general acute care hospitals. The recruitment percentage is calculated based on this number. There are instances where participating hospitals are not characterized as community hospitals, and these result in a recruitment percentage greater than 100.
7 This category denotes hospitals with some form of an intensive care unit (ICU). The project is reporting this because this hospital designation accounts for the majority of project participants, as well as the majority of hospitals likely to insert central lines and to experience Central-Line Associated Blood Stream Infections (CLABSIs).
