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.
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.
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 (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.
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).
To understand if an electronic medical record embedded best practice alert decreased our hospital's Catheter associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) and catheter utilization (CU) rates.
Data from our inpatient prospective CAUTI database, spanning 2011 to 2016, was utilized for our analysis with the BPA starting in 2013.
In 2010, the Veterans Health Administration Office of Nursing Services (VHA ONS) issued a Staffing Methodology (SM) Directive, standardizing the method of determining appropriate nurse staffing for VHA facilities.
