Central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI), ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) and catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) are the most common healthcare-associated infections (HAI), especially for patients in high-risk units such as ICUs (intensive care units). The application of care bundles to reduce infection rate has successfully become an important measure in many countries. This presentation will discuss how and what were the results of the care bundles intervention in different levels of hospital ICUs, including medical centers, regional hospitals and district hospitals that are located at different areas of Taiwan. In high risk ICUs, different care bundles were implemented in the past few years in order to reduce invasive catheter-associated infections, for which were built on evidence-based infection control measures. The feasibility for the implementation of CLABSI, VAP or CAUTI bundles in the healthcare system plays an important role for the quality and policy of infection control. The final outcome of this study will determine the quality of decisions and implementation of the care bundles policy too.
