Objective: compare unit structure and process-related factors against unit-specific CLABSI rate.
Conclusion: CLABSI mitigation requires more than individual competence with task-related practices; the unique work ecology of each clinical area may broadly influence CLABSI as an outcome; extending analyses to consider organizational structure can inform resource allocation and recalibrate traditional prevention strategies.
