Intravenous catheter associated bloodstream infections are the most serious risk today in conjunction with acute care treatment administration. Central line associated bloodstream infections, CLABSIs, are in the spotlight with incidence in the USA now linked to hospital reimbursement under the pay for performance initiatives.
