documentation is largely different from the time the central line or dressing change is charted this will indicated improper use of checklist and who is using the checklist incorrectly so the education may be provided. The second potential barrier is the need for continuous education on the importance of adhering to the central line bundles as nurses come and go from the unit. The education will be incorporated into the unit orientation and as part of the annual competencies check offs. This will ensure that not only new nurses are educated but that all nurses on the unit receive a refresher each year. Conclusion The goal of the change proposal is reach zero CLABSI’s. The implementation of a central line insertion and maintenance bundle will decrease CLABSI’s by ensuring that everyone is following the proper technique on insertion and maintenance care of central lines through the evidence-based bundle (Ling, M. L., et al., 2016). The implementation of a central line placement and care checklist into the EMR will increase the compliance of the central line bundle and therefore decrease CLABSI’s ( Wichmann, D ., Campos, B., Ehrhardt, C. E., Kock, S.,
