Health-care--associated infections (HAIs) account for a substantial portion of health-care--acquired conditions that harm patients receiving medical care. Nearly one in every 20 hospitalized patients in the United States each year acquires an HAI. Central line--associated blood-stream infections (CLABSIs) are one of the most deadly types of HAIs, with a mortality rate of 12%--25% .
