Catheter-associated Urinary Tract Infections
The CAUTI initiative is designed to assist hospitals to implement standardized processes for the identification and adoption of best practices to prevent CAUTIs.
To reduce catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) by 20% from the 2014 baseline, reduce unnecessary indwelling urinary catheter utilization, and sustain reductions in catheter associated urinary tract infections.
NYSPFP's approach to achieving performance excellence is embedded in a dynamic set of guiding principles designed to foster a culture of safety and continuous quality improvement. The following operationalizes the NYSPFP Guiding Principles to innovate, engage, integrate, and hardwire best practices for the reduction of CAUTI's.
