Routinely removed catheters should not be sent for culture. Selected patients with suspected blood stream infections and limited venous access may have their catheter exchanged over a guidewire and the catheter tip should be cultured.

Use sterile scissors not the scalpel used to cut the C-VAD sutures to cut a 5 cm segment, including the tip, and place it in a culture container. Femoral sites have higher infection rates and risk of thrombosis. It is not advisable to try to compare the data from one hospital to another.

It is not advisable to try to compare the data from one hospital to another. You should talk to your physician and look at other sources of information when deciding where to receive care. Insert the needle into the vein and withdraw 20 cc of blood adults. Do not give antibiotics based on a positive catheter culture only. A lower rate may reflect fewer infections, fewer high risk patients, or different levels of infection surveillance. Allow the solution time to dry completely before puncturing the skin. Slide Facilities were asked five questions to assess how accurately they counted central lines. Blood Cultures Patients with a new episode of suspected catheter-related infection should have two sets of peripheral blood samples drawn for culture.

Clin Infect Dis. Insert the needle into the vein and withdraw 20 cc of blood adults.

Always send a second set of blood cultures from a separate venipuncture site. Routine C-VAD guidewire exchange or site rotation is not recommended. Infections are identified by trained hospital staff using standardized definitions. Slide C-VAD Line Cultures: Indications The utility of catheter cultures is controversial; nonetheless, proper technique is imperative to evaluate the data. NHSN protocols dictate that central lines are to be counted at the same time each day. Lastly, facilities were asked if they would count a permanent central line that had not been accessed since admission. Some facilities described their quality assurance strategies. Femoral sites have higher infection rates and risk of thrombosis. Allow the solution time to dry completely before puncturing the skin. Lines should be removed as soon as possible. Sometimes high rates are based on small numbers, so both the number and the rate should be taken into consideration. Rates are affected by the types of patients seen in a hospital, the types of services provided by the hospital, and the frequency of central line use, which differ from hospital to hospital and make comparisons invalid.

All facilities accurately responded that peripheral IVs are not counted as central lines. July 1, — December 31, Consider the following when interpreting the data contained in the CLABSI quarterly reports and when looking at healthcare-associated infection data in general: Age, underlying illnesses, severity of disease, and other factors may place some patients at higher risk for infection.

Distribute the blood evenly between two culture bottles 10 cc per bottle , taking care not to inject air into the anaerobic bottle. Lines should be removed as soon as possible. In addition, the intensity of surveillance efforts and the interpretation of surveillance criteria may also affect the rate. Lastly, facilities were asked if they would count a permanent central line that had not been accessed since admission. Sometimes high rates are based on small numbers, so both the number and the rate should be taken into consideration. Evaluate the clinical picture. The purposes of the audit were to: Assess the accuracy and completeness of selected CLABSIs reported to the NHSN on patients in adult intensive care units during the time period between January 1, and June 30, Identify issues leading to misclassification of CLABSIs Evaluate current surveillance methods used to detect infections and associated denominators Use the results to provide educational materials and lessons learned to infection preventionists across the Commonwealth CLABSI data audit project final report The methods, results, and lessons learned from the audit were shared with infection preventionists throughout Virginia via a recorded webinar on May 20, Do not give antibiotics based on a positive catheter culture only. Selected patients with suspected blood stream infections and limited venous access may have their catheter exchanged over a guidewire and the catheter tip should be cultured. Insert the needle into the vein and withdraw 20 cc of blood adults.

Before handling the new catheter, switch to a new set of sterile gloves. In rare instances where access for peripheral blood draws is limited, one set may be drawn from the line and one set may be drawn percutaneously.

Tailor antimicrobial therapy to the individual patient based on severity of illness, suspected pathogen, and presence of complicating factors. C-VAD Line Cultures: Indications The utility of catheter cultures is controversial; nonetheless, proper technique is imperative to evaluate the data.
