The Central Line Associated Blood Stream Infections (CLABSI) Score is reported using a Standardized Infection Ratio (SIR). This calculation compares the number of central line infections in a hospital’s intensive care unit to a national benchmark based on data reported to NHSN from 2006 – 2008. The result is adjusted based on certain factors such as the type and size of a hospital or ICU.
Lower numbers are better. A score of zero (0) – meaning no CLABSIs – is best.
The column labeled "U.S. Ave" refers to the National Benchmark.
