  • Why Not The Best? Comparative Reports on Central Line-Associated Bloodstream Infections

    Users of 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.

    Lori ~ I do have a personal story that is quite lengthy. More importantly, I would like to send you a copy of the email I am sending to Rep. Batula if you wouldn’t mind providing me your email address. Thank you. I hope we have an opportunity to meet and discuss this important work you are doing!
