Where can I find info on CRBSI's, when is it inserter related vs maintenance related?
Is it at 48-72 hrs? I need the info and references ASAP if possible.

You can find a multitude of published articles on CRBSI by doing a Medline literature search. You will not find literature defining when the event is caused by insertion vs maintenance. You must look at the literature on biofilm development and the points of entry for microorganisms. This is skin vs the catheter hub.

Anything before 48 hours is not considered a HAI. Insertion related is considered to be cause up to72 hours but I have seen folks that extend out to 96 hours. Maki stated that as early as 3 days intraluminal contamination can be the cause. Insertion cause is extraluminal.
