- •Ambulatory CLABSIs are not regularly tracked in complex ambulatory populations.
- •We developed an institutional workflow to identify and track outpatient CLABSIs.
- •We defined surveillance criteria including based on standard NHSN definitions.
- •This is a novel approach to attribute infections by lead and supporting divisions.
- •Our surveillance and attribution methods also incorporate home infusion patients.
