2022 Stronger - P110 - An Allied Strategy to Manage Complexity and CAUTI Reduction - On Demand

Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) make up a substantial portion of health care-associated infections. CAUTI involve many points of risk, from the decision to place a catheter, to insertion and maintenance, to the timing of removal. Despite standard prevention measures, our urinary catheter rate of infections was worsening. As a result, infection prevention and quality leaders embarked on a multidisciplinary project to assess current state and optimize prevention efforts.
