Short story: Good news

While you can go to our website to follow our overall progress on eliminating central line infections in our ICUs, here's something more: Although we have frequently had months where there were no hospital-acquired central line-associated bloodstream infections in our ICUs, October was the first month ever in which we had no such infections in the ICUs or in any other unit.

I want to extend thanks and appreciation to those who do the work and deserve the credit: Lots of nurses everywhere, MDs, PEVAs, our IV team, radiology, and others who place and care for the lines.

Paul,

That is truely what we can understand of "Respect for People" and I guess everywhere on the world, not bound to a specific branch people will appreciate that public plaudit.

Thanks for your activities and openess on what is going on in the Hospital, being so connected to your staff.

Cheers,

Ralf
