The Intensive Care Unit at St. Barnabas Hospital recently received ‘Certified Zero Awards’ for having no catheter-associated urinary tract infections or central line-associated bloodstream infections in the past year.

Catheters deliver life-saving medicines and nutrients to some of the hospital’s most vulnerable patients.

Without proper insertion, utilization and maintenance, catheters can transmit deadly infections to the bloodstream.

Proper infection control plays a vital role in creating a culture of patient safety.
