Key Points: 
  • Unfortunately, up to half of the positive test results for sepsis are falsely positive due to blood sample contamination.\nThese high blood culture contamination rates are responsible for an estimated 1.4 million patients each year put at risk for unnecessary broad-spectrum antibiotic therapy, false-positive CLABSIs and extended hospital stays.
  • This movement was initiated by the call-to-action from the authors of a multi-discipline consensus manuscript published in Clinical Microbiology Reviews in January 2020.
