Not Available: The number of cases is too small to reliably tell how well a hospital is performing.

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.


A score of < 1.0 means that the hospital had fewer CLABSIs than hospitals of similar type and size.
A score of 1.0 means the hospital's CLABSI score was no different than hospitals of similar type and size.
A score of > 1.0 means the hospital had more CLABSIs than hospitals of similar type and size.

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.
