Catherer-related sepsis is a problem with many variables. A process of elimination may eventually identify the actual cause(s) of this phenomenon. We began our problem-solving approach by observing personnel inserting and caring for central lines, which showed a lack of compliance with existing protocols. A program was designed to provide the correct procedural activities. This study plans to test whether ongoing educational programs and an infection control department that maintains a high degree of visibility are effective in reducing nosocomial line-related infections.
