ERASE CAUTI Prevention Program
Revolutionary Approach to Managing Catheters
Reduce catheter-associated urinary tract infections with a revolutionary one-layer tray design and education and awareness tools.
We know urinary tract infections are the most common hospital-acquired infections (HAI) in the United States. We also know most of these infections are attributable to indwelling Foley catheters. So why are up to 25 percent of hospital patients catheterized? Why do we catheterize without a valid clinical reason? And why do many catheters remain in place far longer than they need to be or should be?
Healthcare workers go to extraordinary lengths to provide the best possible care. And although intentions are well meaning, infections and medical errors occur far too often. Now is the time to ERASE CAUTI.
