Infection is a critical healthcare issue

Hospital-acquired conditions (HACs) are a major threat to patient safety and catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) are the most reported HAC. Each year more than 30 million Foley catheters are inserted.2 Approximately 75% of hospital-acquired UTIs are associated with an indwelling urinary catheter.1 The prevention of these infections is a top priority for healthcare institutions. To address this issue, hospitals are implementing rigorous protocols for catheter care, including timely removal and appropriate usage, as well as investing in external alternative devices and staff training. Proactive measures like these are vital in reducing the incidence of CAUTIs and improving overall patient safety.

Professional guidelines

CDC Guidelines for Prevention of CAUTI, 2009

I.A.1 – “Minimize urinary catheter use and duration of use in all patients, particularly those at higher risk for CAUTI or mortality from catheterization such as women, the elderly, and patients with impaired immunity.”6

I.B.1 – “Consider using external catheters as an alternative to indwelling urethral catheters in cooperative male patients without urinary retention or bladder outlet obstruction.”6

IDSA, 2009

A-I, A-II - “Indwelling catheters should be removed as soon as they are no longer required to reduce the risk of CA-bacteriuria and CAUTI."7
