A significant portion were occurring in the MICU and were associated with Candida sp. Bloodstream infections negatively impact patient outcomes, provider workload, and are costly, with a median cost of $48,108 based on a meta-analysis conducted by AHRQ in 2017. By end of 2022, HFM aimed to reduce CLABSI incidence by 50%.
