The abstract, which was presented at the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) Conference in 2018, provides a review of CLABSI events at a large community hospital and the implementation of Chlorhexidine Gluconate (CHG) / Isopropyl alcohol (IPA) to reduce CLABSIs.
