The impacts noted with the decline in the number of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) and central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI).

Chlorhexidine gluconate baths should be provided for all patients, especially those at high risk. Little or no bias noted when cohort studies completed in a similar patient population.
