Eliminating CAUTI: Interim Data Report: A National Patient Safety Imperative.

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality; AHRQ.

This report provides preliminary outcome data from a six-cohort collaborative that used the comprehensive unit-based safety program and associated tools to prevent catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI). The early data show a decrease in the overall rate of CAUTI, with a more striking decrease in non-intensive care unit settings than in ICU settings.
