Even the less costly medical harms, such as CAUTI, HAUTI, VTE, and falls that result in severe injury, can add anywhere from $6000 to $18 000 (or between 30% to 50%) to the cost of the index stay.
Multifaceted prevention programs are effective in decreasing the incidence of CAUTI rates and for enhancing nurses' knowledge of CAUTI prevention strategies and indwelling urinary catheter care (Andrioli et al., 2016; Gesmundo, 2016; Purvis et al., 2014; Rosenthal et al., 2012; Singh et al., 2012; Tillekeratne et al., 2014).
In the regression analysis, response variable was taken as SMR30 and the continuous predictors were IHC, CAUTI, MRSA and PSI.

Prophylactic antibiotics can be useful in some cases, and some studies have shown that their use can reduce CAUTI cases or offset the time before a problematic infection sets in [41].
Specifically, the number of CAUTIs decreased from 11 in 2014 to four in 2015.
In addition, the Hospital reported CLABSI, CAUTI, and VAP were all significantly reduced (50%, 62%, and 100%, respectively), over the same period one year prior (pre-installation), as were resistant organisms (56%), despite no changes to the amount or type of cleaning done.
I enjoyed the article that quizzed nurses on their knowledge of managing indwelling urinary catheters and CAUTI prevention (Managing indwelling urinary catheters, pp14-15).
Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI), a type of UTI, are caused when bacteria or yeast travels along a patient's catheter -- a tube inserted into the bladder to drain the urine and causes an infection in the kidney or bladder.
The relationship between DU ratios and CAUTI rates across different wards was assessed using linear regression (GraphPad software).
In 2014, approximately 4,000 acute care hospitals (3,655 reported CLABSI data, 3,791 reported data on CAUTI, 3,994 reported CDI, and 3,618 reported SSI), 501 long-term acute care hospitals, and 1,135 inpatient rehabilitation facilities contributed data.
