Central Line Associated Blood Stream Infections (CLABSI)
Although AGH’s “yellow” rating is defined as “No different than Predicted by National Experience”, AGH’s 2 year goal through 2012 is to reduce our 3 Central Line Associated Blood Stream Infections to 0 thus earning AGH a “green” rating defined as “Better (lower) than Predicted by National Experience”!
