Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infection (CAUTI)

Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infection (CAUTI) is the most prevalent healthcare associated infection (HAI) worldwide. 

Following a revised national definition, NHS boards tested methods of measuring incidents of CAUTI and the processes that will reduce them. The interventions have focused on the use of evidence-based bundles for catheter insertion and maintenance to help avoid catheter insertion, reduction of length of catheterisation and avoid cross-contamination. Another outcome measure of catheter use has been developed and NHS boards are now reporting a significant reduction in the number of people with a catheter in pilot wards.
