PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center
Measure: Develop and test practices to prevent blood stream infections associated with venous catheters that will be fully implemented by January 1, 2010.

Time Period Ending:  3/31/2013

What We Are Doing:
Ketchikan Medical Center uses "best practice" guidelines for insertion and management of venous catheters. Although extremely rare, if we do discover an infection, we immediately investigate to determine the cause.  Questions can be routed to: Barbara Bigelow, VP Quality at 907-821-1990.
