Is 2-person urinary catheter insertion effective in reducing CAUTI?
American Journal of Infection Control
This study focused on implementation of the 2-person urinary catheter insertion protocol as a way to decrease catheter-associated infection (CAUTI) rates. Whereas the CAUTI prevention bundle is important to implement, additional focus on specific parts of the bundle are imperative. The results of this study indicate implementation of the 2-person urinary catheter insertion protocol with a checklist decreased the risk of CAUTI for our patient population.
