    It is a part of our hospital CLABSI bundle that CHG baths be performed daily on all inpatients (oncology and non-oncology) who have central lines.

    Our PICU is currently working to transition to doing CHG baths on patients once a day.  I know BMT units tend to do this but does any hospital do these types of baths on oncology units??
