Since August 2011, 100 neonatal intensive care units in nine States have participated in a national, neonatal central line-associated bloodstream infection (NCLABSI) reduction project as part of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality-funded national effort to prevent central line-associated bloodstream infections in U.S. hospitals by implementing a Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program (CUSP). 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.
