Description

Urinary tract infections are one of the five most common types of healthcare-associated infections. In fact, they account for one-fourth of all hospital healthcare-associated infections. Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) have been associated with increased morbidity, mortality, hospital cost, and length of stay. This program provides an overview of strategies to prevent CAUTIs, including appropriate indications for indwelling urinary catheters, alternatives to indwelling catheters, insertion and maintenance bundles, and stewardship measures.
