Congratulations to CVC 5 for going a full year without a CLABSI (Central Line Associated Blood Stream Infection)!

For their efforts, the unit earned a 365 Days of Safety Award from the organization. This is the 90th overall safety award given out within Michigan Medicine!

The 365 Days of Safety Award program recognizes outstanding practice within a patient care unit, area, clinic or department which resulted in the avoidance of patient harm and health care-acquired conditions for 365 consecutive days. The award also demonstrates the sustainability of the associated patient safety practice.
