Abstract/Description

In this study, several evidence-based articles were reviewed and critically appraised to find effective ways to prevent catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI). Findings were compared to a rural hospital’s current policy for catheterization and catheter care. A 10 minute educational session was performed using lecture and poster board presentation to display the results. A question and answer session was provided at the end. Revisions to the current policy were recommended in order to decrease incidence of CAUTI by changing nursing practice. Recommendations for prevention of CAUTI based on evidence-based research include; hand hygiene promotion, prevention of unnecessary urinary catheterization, aseptic insertion, proper maintenance, and prompt removal of catheter when it is no longer medically needed.
