This article describes the implementation and results of catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) prevention efforts by a large network of children’s hospitals between 2011 and 2017. Prevention efforts included catheter insertion and maintenance bundles. After implementation of the bundles, CAUTI rates across the network decreased by 61.6%.
