Sample Nursing Paper on Emergency Department Central Line-Associated Blood Stream Infections (CLABSI)

Central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) is a bloodstream form of infection that develops within 48 hours of central line placement. Infections are the costliest to cure when they occur. Particularly the literature indicates that most cases are preventable when proper techniques of surveillance are applied together strategies that promote the health of the patients. The literature indicates that the Central line is made by placing a catheter into the patient’s vein. It is often placed on the neck, chest or even the groins. It is used mostly to give fluids to critically ill patients, and it may be used for several weeks. This may result in germs entering the patient bloodstream and causing infection.

The literature has a gap when relating to the ability to develop alternatives to ClABSI or increase the surveillance for patients who are administered the CLABSI is essential. How to apply other options and monitoring to patients to reduce the cases should be taken into account (Noaman et al., 2018). Development CLABSI automated technique should be of great help to curb the already worsening situations. Multitiered surveillance predicting system is well though a proposal that ensures patients information is well collected and stored, and it automatically identifies patient infection based on the already kept records. The variables that revolve around the gap aim at determining the levels of contamination in advance stage and the right medication to stop the development of infection to advanced levels. The expansion of the web-based surveillance will also greatly help in reduction in the cost of the treatment and reduce cases of the disease happening.
