Central line infections

Our Rates

All hospitals with ICUs required to report into the Critical Care Information System (CCIS) - a centralized data collection system where hospitals report a variety of critical care information - must publicly report the CLI indicator data. These hospitals are considered "eligible" for CLI-BSI reporting. These Ontario hospitals are posting their quarterly CLI rate and case count for those infections acquired in their facility, using the following formula:

    (total # of ICU related BSIs after 48 hours of central line placement)    
(total # of central line days for ICU patients 18 years and older) x 1000
