Reduction of urinary catheter days versus catheter irrigation, instillation of antimicrobial solutions, and antibiotic ointments applied to the urinary meatus Maria Fernanda Haro NURS 4900 Professor Pamela Ostrander February 29, 2012 Reduction of urinary catheter days versus catheter irrigation, instillation of antimicrobial solutions, and antibiotic ointments applied to the urinary meatus Purpose The purpose of this proposal is to support, educate, and demonstrate that only one intervention decreases the incident of CAUTI (Catheter Urinary Tract Infection) based on the evidence: reducing the length of time a urinary catheter is in place is the strongest predictor that CAUTI is likely to deve
The guideline can also be used as a resource for societies or organizations that wish to develop more detailed implementation guidance for prevention of CAUTI. Literature Review Catheter use-Risk factor for contraction of Catheter Urinary Tract Infection Inserted catheters form an entry point for microbes to colonize the patient’s rather sterile body. “Following finite colonization, the risk rate of bacteriuria is estimated at (3-10) % per day. The invading microbes could be of low virulence but nonetheless they are no match for the body’s host defense system, which is compromised” (Nicolle 2012, p.13). The immune-comprised patients succumb to nosocomial infections and in this respect, catheter urinary tract infection (CAUTI). ...
