Intravascular haemodialysis catheters are essential in the management of critically & chronically ill patients suffering from acute injury and chronic renal failure. However, hemodialysis catheter is often complicated by CRBSI, which are associated with increased morbidity, duration of hospitalization, and additional medical costs. The objectives that were taken in to consideration include assessing the effectiveness of infection control practice within the unit, comparing infection rates with the international rate as identified by CDC, identify the causes of vascular catheter infections, developing a standardized surveillance system for monitoring hemodialysis vascular access infections, educate and enhance the staff awareness about prevention and control of catheter related infections and reduce patient morbidity & mortality rates. FOCUS PDCA quality improvement methodology was used for achieving the above objectives in the unit. As per the new changes implemented in Dubai hospital renal unit, improvement has been achieved related to the CRBSI, Quality and continuity of patient care were enhanced, patient’s skills and knowledge for self-care enhanced. Positive influence on patient/family attitudes like more co-ordination between multidisciplinary team, enhanced patients and staff satisfaction, reduced CRBSI below the international rate as identified by CDC were observed.
