Great efforts are being implemented to eliminate blood stream infections. Now, each time a nurse changes a PICC line dressing, an observer intervenes if the nurse breaks sterile field or does not follow policy. If this happens, the nurse starts over with a new kit.
Additionally, goal sheets for the practitioners prompt them to ask daily if the line can be removed to help lower the risk of infection.
