We’ve updated our NHSN web page, including information on:

  • Guide to the NHSN DE Surveillance BSI Standardized Infection Ratio (SIR) Measure – a new QIP measure
  • BSI Rate by Access Type from NHSN DE data for 2014, revealing that
  • Dialysis patients using a CVC are more than eight times more likely to experience a BSI than patients using an AVF
  • How to Complete a DE Denominators Form
  • Reporting Related DEs Together in NHSN
