Quarterly rates for CLIs are calculated using the following formula:
|total # of ICU related blood stream infections after 48 hours of central line placement||X 1000|
|total # of central line days for ICU patients 18 years and older|
The numbers represent the number of central line infections associated with the hospital in the reported time period.
