b.) A patient with two or more Central Lines in place at the time of the count is counted as one patient with a Central Line on that day.

c.) Count the total number of patients who are in the ICU each day at the time of the line counts. Statistician using Registry Data to obtain admit date and time closet to 2300 hrs?--Trish Ostryzniuk 19:26, 2013 May 14 (EDT)

Data Use

Julie reports line count for central line infection rates in Quarterly report and Annual report and for CCVSM. Since TISS28 will be collected and entered for entire LOS, Julie will utilize TISS28 & Registry Data for counts starting January, 1, 2013. Julie will need to post more information in regards how data is used. --Trish Ostryzniuk 19:11, 2013 May 14 (EDT)
