CUSP/Stop BSI

CUSP/Stop BSI Collaborative of MO (Password Protected Page)

An estimated 250,000 central line-associated blood stream infections (CLABSIs) occur in hospitals each year, and as many as 62,000 patients who get these infections die as a result. The Center for Patient Safety, in partnership with the Health Research Educational Trust, Johns Hopkins University Quality and Safety Research Group and the Keystone Center for Patient Safety and Quality of the Michigan Health & Hospital Association, is working with hospitals to implement the Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program (CUSP) and other interventions to prevent central line-associated blood stream infections (CLABSI). This national project, the first of its kind in size and scope, aims to eliminate harm that has been, until now, considered an inevitable circumstance of health care. The goals of the CUSP/Stop BSI Collaborative are as follows:

  • Reduce the mean CLABSI rate in Missouri and across the nation to less than 1 per 1000 catheter days over two years
  • Improve safety culture
  • Partner with the CDC to support the measurement and timely feedback of CLABSI and other health care acquired infection (HAI) data
