Transcript of CAUTI

-This is an infection that should never happen. -According to Preventing Catheter Associated UTIs: Survey Report, UTIs are the most common health care associated infection, representing up to 40% of all hospital acquired infections. Lewin Change Theory Unfreezing: educate health care staff about why standardization is necessary and the dangers of having different systems within each hospital Lewin Change Theory Lewin Change Theory Change:
bundle strategies are recommended by the CDC for prevention of CAUTI. Part of the change is also getting feedback from the staff. By involving the staff and getting their opinion on the new changes they are more likely to feel heard and through that are more likely to follow the new protocols. Refreezing:
This is where a hospital wide protocol has to be made.

-care bundles
-who performs care? nurses or CNA's
-audit system
-special flow sheets

A is for Adherence
B is for Bladder Ultrasound
C is for Catheterization
D is for Do Not Use Catheter Unless Necessary
E is for Early Catheter Removal Transformational Leadership style to implement the CDC guidelines of the ABCDE approach. Evaluation of the Plan We would measure the outcomes in a couple ways.

1.By auditing and having a new flow sheet to chart on one would be able to see if things were changing

2.By listening to the nurses and seeing how they feel about the new protocols

3.By seeing the number of CAUTIs decrease the next 6 months to a year. Ultimately this is important and accurate way to see if the change is really working. Conclusion We learned that CAUTIs are completely preventable and should never happen in a hospital setting. As new nurses it will be up to us to be an example in helping prevent CAUTIs.
