Ultimate Goal - Zero Central Line Blood Stream Infections Goal for 2012 – To have 25% reduction in Blood Stream Infections at Houston Medical Center.
To create a cost effective process to reduce Blood stream infections utilizing resources available with our Central Line Dressing changes.
During rounds it was noted that Central Line dressings were not being changed per our policy. Some dressing were not changed correctly or in the time frame set. No accountability for who was responsible for the dressing change. Day or Nightshift nurse No consistency Recommendation was made to decrease the number of staff members responsible for dressing changes.
A new process was discussed with the Infection Prevention & Control Manager, Director of Nursing and IV Therapy Manager to utilize IV Therapy nurses. Implementing a cost-effective process. A process focused on ensuring efficient use of time by all staff.
Discussed process with the Med/Surg, ICU and IV Therapy Nurse Managers and Clinical Coordinators in a meeting. Arranged a Trial Period June 6 -27, 2012. Discussed With IV therapy nurses the process and expectations. Educated IV Therapy nurses on the documentation in Meditech. Contacted IT department to give nurse permission to access patient information. Arranged for supply availability to complete dressing changes Definined a way to accurately capture supply charges.
ROUTINE central line dressings will be changed on WEDNESDAY by IVT nurse. The ANM or charge nurse for each Med/Surg area will FAX a list of the patients that have a central line to IV Therapy on Tuesday evening or early (before 0800) Wednesday morning. Supplies for the dressing change will be brought from IV Therapy and restocked on the Nursing unit.
