Bundling: Decreasing Costs, Improving Outcomes

A central component of your prevention plan. Central Line Associated Blood Stream Infections (CLABSIs) are almost entirely preventable. Every major health agency including the CDC, OSHA and The Joint Commission asserts that a robust prevention strategy including proper techniques, protocols and bundling, significantly reduces CLABSIs. Research provides further compelling evidence that using a bundle strategy as a central component of an overall plan to reduce infections is an effective way for hospitals to combat central line-related infections.*

Centurion's CVC Zone Bundle and CVC Stock + Bundles help hospitals seamlessly integrate CLABSI prevention into the central line insertion procedure, reducing un-reimbursed treatment costs, curtailing potentially costly litigation and ultimately, saving lives.
