Abstract/Description

This investigation aims at the discovery of underlining principles of Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI) and catheter care delegation among nursing personnel. This evidence-based practice serves as a guide for care of admitted patients with indwelling catheters to reduce the incidence of CAUTI and raise awareness for interventions associated with primary prevention.

Evidence to support such interventions includes implementation of a catheter insertion and care team, improved documentation with enhanced availability for narrative charting, facilitated communication among nurses and nursing assistants, increased vigilance of daily assessment and the need for continuing indwelling urinary catheters, continual education about intermittent catheter care, and facility-wide adherence to current ANA standards of practice.

By encouraging these interventions, the risk for CAUTI will be reduced. Nationally, hospitals will receive higher rates of reimbursement from Medicaid and Medicare and better hospital satisfaction scores.
