Previous research has found that racial and ethnic disparities can hinder the safe care of pediatric patients. In this cross-sectional study, researchers examined racial and ethnic disparities in central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) and unplanned extubation (UE) rates across 27 children’s hospitals in the United States. Compared to White patients, Black and African-American patients had higher UE rates and Hispanic, Native American, and Pacific Islander patients had higher CLABSI rates.
