Central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) is one of the most common infectious complications after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. To prevent this complication, international guidelines recommend the implementation of the CLABSI 'prevention bundle' consisting of hand hygiene, full barrier precautions, cleaning the insertion site with chlorhexidine, avoiding femoral sites for insertion, and removing unnecessary catheters. The aim of this survey was to analyze to what extent European Group for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT) centers have included the CLABSI prevention bundle in practice.

Abstract

Central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) is one of the most common infectious complications after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. To prevent this complication, international guidelines recommend the implementation of the CLABSI 'prevention bundle' consisting of hand hygiene, full barrier precautions, cleaning the insertion site with chlorhexidine, avoiding femoral sites for insertion, and removing unnecessary catheters. The aim of this survey was to analyze to what extent European Group for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT) centers have included the CLABSI prevention bundle in practice.
