Standardized Infection Ratios for CLABSI All Locations Combined 2013
This dataset is about the Standardized Infection Ratio (SIR) for central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) which is a statistic used to track healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) over time, at national, state, or facility level. The SIR compares the actual number of HAIs at each hospital, to the predicted risk-adjusted number of infections based on national baseline data. Risk adjustment takes into account that some hospitals treat sicker patients than others.

A central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) is a serious infection that occurs when germs (usually bacteria or viruses) enter the bloodstream through the central line. Healthcare providers must follow a strict protocol when inserting the line to make sure the line remains sterile and a CLABSI does not occur. In addition to inserting the central line properly, healthcare providers must use stringent infection control practices each time they check the line or change the dressing. Patients who get a CLABSI have a fever, and might also have red skin and soreness around the central line. If this happens, healthcare providers can do tests to learn if there is an infection present.
If the SIR is 1, then the number of actual infections is the same as the number of predicted infections.
If the SIR is less than 1, then the number of actual infections is less than the number of predicted infections.
If the SIR is greater than 1, then the number of actual infections is greater than the number of predicted infections.
Usually, a low SIR reflects the results of robust HAI prevention strategies. These scenarios are exciting, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is working with facilities and states to learn and share best practices.

|State||Name of U.S. State, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico||string||required : 1|
|State_NHSN_Mandate||Yes indicates the presence of a state mandate to report CLABSI data from any location to NHSN at the beginning of 2013. The other options include the mid-year implementation of a mandate.||string||-|
|Any_Validation||Indicates whether the state health department reported the completion of all validation activities. The Values are "Yes", "No" and "YesA". "YesA" indicates that the state also conducted an audit of facility medical or laboratory records prior to July 1, 2014 to confirm proper case ascertainment.||string||-|
|Facilities_Reporting||Identifies the number of facilities reporting in the state.||integer||level : Ratiorequired : 1|
|Infections_Observed||Identifies the total number of infections observed in the state for the year 2013.||integer||level : Ratiorequired : 1|
|Infections_Predicted||Identifies the total number of infections predicted in the state for the year 2013.||number||level : Ratiorequired : 1|
|SIR||Standardized Infection Ratio which is the ratio of Number of infections observed to number of infections predicted.||number||level : Ratiorequired : 1|
|Ninety_Five_Percent_CI_for_SIR_Lower||A 95% CI assesses the magnitude and stability of an SIR. Specifically, a 95% CI is the range of estimated SIR values that has a 95% probability of including the true SIR for the population. A confidence interval (CI) is calculated around an SIR to determine how likely it is that the number of observed number of cases is high or low by chance.||number||level : Ratiorequired : 1|
|Ninety_Five_Percent_CI_for_SIR_Upper||A 95% CI assesses the magnitude and stability of an SIR. Specifically, a 95% CI is the range of estimated SIR values that has a 95% probability of including the true SIR for the population. A confidence interval (CI) is calculated around an SIR to determine how likely it is that the number of observed number of cases is high or low by chance.||number||level : Ratiorequired : 1|
|SIRs_Facilities_With_Atleast_1_Predicted_CLABSI||Percent of facilities with at least one predicted CLABSI that had an SIR significantly greater or less than the 2013 national overall CLABSI SIR of 0.538. This is only calculated if at least 10 facilities had at least one predicted CLABSI in 2013.||integer||level : Ratiorequired : 1|

|Key_Percentiles_10_Percent||Facility-specific key percentiles were only calculated if at least 20 facilities had ≥1.0 predicted CLABSI in 2013. If a facility’s predicted number of CLABSI was <1.0, a facility-specific SIR was neither calculated nor included in the distribution of facility-specific SIRs.||number||level : Ratio|
|Key_Percentiles_25_Percent||Facility-specific key percentiles were only calculated if at least 20 facilities had ≥1.0 predicted CLABSI in 2013. If a facility’s predicted number of CLABSI was <1.0, a facility-specific SIR was neither calculated nor included in the distribution of facility-specific SIRs.||number||level : Ratio|
|Key_Percentiles_50_Percent||Facility-specific key percentiles were only calculated if at least 20 facilities had ≥1.0 predicted CLABSI in 2013. If a facility’s predicted number of CLABSI was <1.0, a facility-specific SIR was neither calculated nor included in the distribution of facility-specific SIRs.||number||level : Ratio|
