A program to reduce central line-associated bloodstream infections in 88 pediatric ICUs saved 355 lives and $100 million in health costs while preventing almost 3,000 infections over five years, according to a report from the National Association of Children's Hospitals and Related Institutions' Quality Transformation Network. The collaboration allowed for more data, outcome and process measures as well as an outside perspective to help gauge progress, Dr. Matthew Niedner of C.S. Mott Children's Hospital Pediatric ICU said.
