Abstract

Our “Matching Michigan” program has 3 focuses for identifying and reducing nosocomial infection. First, practical training to optimize infection control; second, root cause analysis of blood-culture positives; and third, feedback and use of results to develop new guidelines. Our infection rates are comparable with adult units. Interventions have reduced coagulase-negative staphylococcal infections whereas other infection rates have reduced relative to increased activity.
