Sepsis and central line-associated neonatal infection: a care bundle QI project

Rowena Craig, Simon Pirie, Michellee Grant


Neonatal late-onset sepsis (LOS) is a significant cause of mortality and morbidity within neonatal units. These infections are often associated with the insertion and use of central lines. Data from 2017 identified the local neonatal unit at Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust as an outlier with above average rates of LOS. A quality improvement (QI) project was therefore created with the aim of reducing rates of central line-associated sepsis.
