Emerging evidence-based innovative approaches to control catheter-associated urinary tract infection: a review.

Healthcare settings have dramatically advanced the latest medical devices, such as urinary catheters (UC) for infection, prevention, and control (IPC). The continuous or intermittent flow of a warm and conducive (urine) medium in the medical device, the urinary catheter, promotes the formation of biofilms and encrustations, thereby leading to the incidence of CAUTI.

Prevention of Catheter-associated Urinary Tract Infections through Evidence-based Management of Indwelling Urinary Catheters in Adult Patients

Results and lessons from a hospital-wide initiative incentivised by delivery system reform to improve infection prevention and sepsis care.

An academic safety-net hospital leveraged the federally funded state Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment programme to implement a hospital-wide initiative to reduce healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) and improve sepsis care.

Examining instruments used to measure knowledge of catheter-associated urinary tract infection prevention in healthcare workers: a systematic review.

Catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) is the most frequently occurring healthcare associated infection (HAI) among hospitalised patients. Adequate knowledge of CAUTI in healthcare workers supports effective prevention and control of the infection.

Optimising Interventions for Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI) in Primary, Secondary and Care Home Settings.

Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) are common yet preventable. Healthcare professional behaviours, such as reducing unnecessary catheter use, are key for preventing CAUTI. Previous research has focused on identifying gaps in the national response to CAUTI in multiple settings in England.

Healthcare-associated infection prevention and control management in a tertiary hospital and an overall evaluation.

Healthcare-associated infection (HAI) is a crucial factor influencing medical quality. Studies about HAI management situations are rare, especially for the Inner Mongolia region of China. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate management procedures and the overall evaluation of HAI in order to inform HAI management improvement more scientifically.

Nursing Leadership and the Reduction of Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infection.

The prevention of infections continues to be a challenge for many hospitals. We examined specific features of nursing leadership and found improvements in leadership were associated with a decrease in catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI).
