Care teams can use this checklist to work together to decrease patient harm from catheter-related bloodstream infections. The bedside nurse completes the checklist during all central venous or central arterial line insertions or re-wires. If any item on the checklist is not adhered to or there are any concerns, the ICU attending is contacted.
