    A couple of questions on Hospital CLABSI Rates/Yearly Corporate Goals
    1. Does your hospital go by a fiscal year? If so do you report your CLABSI data by fiscal year or calendar year? or Both? Calendar year for our Score Card but monitor on a rolling basis.
    2. Does your hospital set corporate goals for CLABSI rates (hospital and department/unit specific)? Hospital and Departmental. We do Hem-Onc (BMT and inpatient rates are combined) and we also report and monitor and report Hem-Onc outpatient rates. The hospital also monitors and reports rates for NICU, PICU and non-Hem-Onc, non-ICU patients.
    3. If you do set corporate goals, how to you determine your CLABSI goal for the next year? What is your methodology?
    4. Do you set a lower CLABSI rate or do you have a goal to decrease the number of CLABSIs from one year to the next? 40% reduction from year to year.
