Reduce Rates of Dialysis Event: Bloodstream Infection Quality Improvement Activity

The 2017 Statement of Work requires that ESRD Networks work with at least 20% of facilities with highest bloodstream infection rates, as reported to the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN).  As such, 84 facilities were chosen for intervention: 27 Alabama units, 20 Mississippi units, and 37 Tennessee units, based on January 2016 through June 2016 NHSN bloodstream infection rate data. The project goal is to achieve a 5% or greater relative reduction in the pooled mean bloodstream infection rate at re-measurement.
