Reduction of Central Venous Catheter Associated Blood Stream Infections Following Implementation of a Resident Oversight and Credentialing Policy

This study assesses the impact that a resident oversight and credentialing policy for central venous catheter (CVC) placement had on institution-wide central line associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI). We therefore investigated the rate of CLABSI per 1,000 line days during the 12 months before and after implementation of the policy.
