1. It is not known if the implementation of a nurse-driven catheter removal protocol using the Agency for Healthcare and Quality (AHRQ) Comprehensive Unit base toolkit for reducing catheter-associated urinary tract infection – prompt removal protocol would impact catheter utilization days among adult patients admitted to a long-term acute care hospital.
2. The purpose of this quality improvement project is to determine if the implementation of the Agency for Healthcare and Quality (AHRQ) Comprehensive Unit base toolkit for reducing catheter-associated urinary tract infection – prompt removal protocol would impact catheter utilization days among adult patients admitted to a long-term acute care hospital. The project is to be piloted over an eight-week period in a 52-bed urban long-term acute care hospital in Virginia.
