Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections: Reporting Requirements and the Real Implications for Patient Safety

      

    Objectives of the Presentation

    Participants should be able to:

    • Describe the role CAUTI play in publically-reported metrics, as well as pay-for-performance.
    • Review basic and extended interventions to reduce indwelling urinary catheter use and CAUTI.
    • Explore hazards of urinary catheter use beyond CAUTI morbidity and cost.

      Take-Away Points of the Presentation

      1. The prevention of CAUTI requires a multi-disciplinary effort addressing catheter indication, insertion and maintenance practices, and prompt discontinuation.

      2. Successful strategies may require culture change, re-assessing provider workflow and team communication, and facility-tailored interventions.

      3. Reductions in indwelling urinary catheter use may yield patient safety benefits beyond reduction in catheter-associated infections.
