Implementation of long-term patient bed and space rotation for CLABSI reduction in the NICU

Project Description: In 2017, the NICU began moving long-term (greater than 20 days) patients into clean bassinets and a clean bed space within 30 days. This will allow EVS to terminally clean the environment more frequently and reduce the build up of dust on bed space surfaces and bassinets. The goal of this project is to see if there is a reduction in risk of a CLABSI of NICU patients that have been transferred into a clean bassinets and bed space within 30 days.
