Join us as Master of Science in Applied Life Sciences student Alhasan Alani speaks about prevention of catheter-associated urinary tract infection in an acute care hospital.

“Urinary tract infections are one of the most common types of nosocomial infection, with the vast majority attributable to an indwelling urinary catheter. Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) could lead to serious complications, discomfort to the patient, and increased hospital stay, resulting in around 9000 deaths and costing the healthcare system $500 million annually. This study will assess the incidence of CAUTI in an acute care hospital and compare current protocols to nationally recommended guidelines. Although there has been a significant reduction in CAUTI incidence, the overall goal of this study is to completely prevent CAUTIs using a combination of methods including daily review of catheter necessity, RN-driven timely catheter removal, aseptic management, educational programs, and through the use of alternative options such as superabsorbent pads.”
