NICU Vermont Oxford

Over the last two years the Neonatal ICU has been working with eight national neonatal centers as part of the Vermont Oxford collaborative to reduce hospital acquired infections. We have developed work processes designed to prevent infections and standardized how we insert, maintain, and remove central venous catheters.

Over the past two years, we have continually reduced our infections, saving patients from needless infections and saving over $1 million in healthcare costs to date.
