The purpose of this study is to quantify and analyze the line accesses for each of the 3 participating ICUs.
The hypothesis is that the CICU will have a significantly higher number of line accesses than the other units. Analyzing the data will assist the researchers in identifying best practices and ultimately, reduce the BSI rate in the CICU.
