Consumer Reports releases report on infections in pediatric intensive care units

Share this:

A new report from the Consumer Reports Health Ratings Center found that pediatric ICUs often have higher infection rates than adult ICUs, and that some hospitals do much better than others at preventing infections. The report focused on central-line bloodstream infections, rating 92 pediatric ICUs in 31 states plus Washington, D.C., which publicly reported enough data for statistical valid assessments of their rate of bloodstream infections. Those infections are fatal in as many as one in four cases.
