Broward Children's Case Study

RB Health Partners, Inc.
Broward Children's Comprehensive Care Center (CCCC)
Full Report


Broward Children's Center, a 36-bed pediatric care facility, implemented the portable Protect 900 units in selected rooms and areas in November 2013. This study compares the total number of respiratory nosocomial infections before and after implementation of the Novaerus technology.

A 20-month review was conducted to evaluate the results.


A Nurse Risk Manager Consultant with RB Health Partners, Inc. visited the facility for two days to abstract information and review the data. The periods selected for aggregate pre- and post-review were January through August of 2013 and 2014. Comparison of like periods reduces the risk of skewed data related to seasonal variances.


In the period after implementation of the Protect 900 units in selected rooms and areas, the total number of nosocomial respiratory infections at Broward Children's Center decreased from 29 to 14, a 51.72% reduction.
