Why Not The Best? Comparative Reports on Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infections
Users of WhyNotTheBest.org can now search for and compare data for nearly 1,000 hospitals on the incidence of central line–associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs)—one of the most lethal hospital-acquired complications. The data show wide variation in CLABSI incidence, in spite of strong evidence on how to prevent them. The updated data is made possible through a partnership among The Commonwealth Fund, The Leapfrog Group, and Consumers Union.

What seems like the biggest FAIL of common sense to me is when medical personnel wear scrubs outside in public! What a great way to bring “bad stuff” INTO the hospital or medical facility and “bad stuff” back into the population! How easy is it to change your clothes???? NO MORE SCRUBS IN PUBLIC!!! Easy!
