Participate in infection prevention collaboratives to share
your challenges and best practices with other hospitals.
Involve physician champions and multidisciplinary teams.
Use checklists.
Employ small, specially trained teams and individuals
(including intensivists in the ICUs) to conduct and/or
oversee line insertion and maintenance throughout the
hospital.
Sustain best practices with ongoing education, monitoring,
and adjustments and provide performance data to staff to
keep them focused on outcomes.
