objectives
Objectives
  • Identify 5 evidence based resources proven to reduce HAI’s in the dialysis setting
  • Review how to implement the use of audits in your QAPI program
  • Review Wyoming infection data-How does your dialysis unit stack up?
why are dialysis patients at risk for infection
Why are dialysis patients at Risk for Infection?
  • Patients who undergo hemodialysis have a higher risk of infection, due to the following factors:
    • Frequent use of catheters or insertion of needles to access the bloodstream
    • Weakened immune systems
    • Frequent hospital stays and surgery
slide4
Why?
  • About 410,000 people receive hemodialysis (HD) at any given timein the United States
  • About 8 in 10 of these patients start treatment through a central line (a major risk factor for BSI)
  • Infections are one of the leading causes of hospitalization and death for patients on hemodialysis
slide5
Why?
  • For hemodialysis patients, the rate of infection is now 43% greater than it was in 1993!
  • Hospitalization rates for BSIs have increased by 47% and by 87% for vascular access infections!
what do we need to do
What do we need to do?

CLABSI prevention in dialysis facilities will require:

  • Increased adherence to current inpatient CLABSI prevention recommendations
  • The development and implementation of additional prevention strategies specific to the dialysis environment
  • Collection and analysis of data

cdc core interventions
CDC core Interventions
  • Surveillance and feedback using NHSN
  • Hand hygiene observations
  • Catheter/vascular access observations
  • Staff education and competency
  • Patient education/engagement
  • Catheter reduction
  • Chlorhexidine for skin asepsis
  • Catheter hub disinfection
  • Antimicrobial ointment
catheter care
Catheter Care
  • Use chlorhexidine for skin antisepsis during insertion/dressing change (allow to dry)
  • Catheter hub cleansing

(scrub-the-hub) after cap removed and before accessing

  • Use antimicrobial ointment or chlorhexidine-impregnated sponge dressings
key infection prevention practices
Key Infection Prevention Practices
  • Perform hand hygiene frequently/change gloves
  • Maintain separate clean areas for supplies and medications and separate contaminated areas for used items
  • Practice safe injection practices
  • Perform proper environmental cleaning
  • Dedicate supplies to a single patient

Use aseptic technique every time!

using audits in qapi
Using Audits in QAPI
  • Perform audits on a regular basis
  • Involve all staff in audit process
  • Share results with staff
  • Review audit findings monthly in QAPI
  • Use results to identify areas for improvement
  • Perform follow up audits of problem staff or areas identified for improvement
  • Review and celebrate improvements
