Summary of Clinical Issue (200-250 words):

A catheter associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) is one of the most commonly hospital acquired infections according to emerging research. Even with the best precautionary measures, the chances of developing this infection are about 9% for catheterized patients. About 9% to24% of these patients develops CAUTI. A good number of hospitalized patients have a urinary catheter increasing the risk of developing CAUTI. In addition, healthcare institutions are penalized for having more than expected CAUTIs making them experience significant financial impacts. CAUTI risk is associated to the dwell time of the catheter. The rate of development of the bacterium causing CAUTIs for catheterized patients is about 4%-7% in a day.

However, this risk approaches 100% if the patients remain with the indwelling urinary catheter for more than thirty days. The recognition that about 75% of CAUTIs can be preventable has resulted in the development of multiple strategies to reduce development of CAUTIs in the healthcare setting. These interventions include simple approaches such as removing urinary catheters that are no longer needed and avoiding placing unneeded urinary catheters. Health care professionals are responsible for taking care of the patients having urinary catheters in the healthcare setting and are therefore important in preventing the development of CAUTIs.

PICOT Question: In the Management of CAUTI patients (P), how effective is staff education and regular monitoring of CAUTI cases (I) compared to maintenance of a closed urinary drainage system (C) in preventing the development of CAUTIs (O) for the period of hospital stay (T)?
