Reducing Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections in Hospital Units: Implementation Guide
Health care-associated infections are one of the most common complications of hospital care. Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) are among the most common types among them. Research suggests CAUTIs are highly preventable (perhaps as many as 50 to 70 percent of these episodes). As many as one-fourth of all hospital inpatients may have a short-term, indwelling urinary catheter placed during their hospital stay, and a significant portion of these catheters are placed without appropriate indications. This guide is designed to support implementation of evidence-based practices and elimination of CAUTIs.
