may be reluctant to CHG bathing, nurses should educate the patients on the significance but not force the practice. ConclusionResearch and studies will continue to be done on prevention of HAIs and CLABSI with CHG bathing, but thus far the research demonstrates it to be beneficial for patients. Based on the studies, CLABSI rates were reduced in high-risk patients by implementation of daily CHG bathing. Incorporation of CHG daily bathing does not require a substantial change to the current bathing practices, therefore nurses can provide an essential, safe and cost-effective strategy to prevent HAIs for all hospitalized patients.
