Develop written guidelines for urinary catheterization, and include indications for indwelling urinaryCatheterization and ensuring that catheter placement is limited to patients who meet indications.

Post Foley Removal Guideline Process and Outcome Evaluation

A comprehensive literature review using the electronic database search engines of PubMed, CINAHL, Medline, and EBSCO Host was conducted to examine the most effective interventions to decrease CAUTI related risks.

Current controversies in urinary tract infections: ICI‐RS 2017

The utility of current definitions for UTI in adults with and without underlying neurological conditions is considered in order to identify gaps in current understanding and to recommend directions for research.

Inappropriate urinary catheterisation: a review of the prevalence, risk factors and measures to reduce incidence.

Evaluated the current evidence on the prevalence, risk factors and measures that can be taken to prevent inappropriate urinary catheterisation to find the best way to prevent catheter-associated UTIs.

Reducing unnecessary urinary catheter use and other strategies to prevent catheter-associated urinary tract infection: an integrative review

UC reminders and stop orders appear to reduce CAUTI rates and should be used to improve patient safety, as well as emerging evidence regarding intervention bundles.

Systematic Search for Guidelines to Prevent Catheter-associated Urinary Tract Infections-Part II: Using the Ovid MEDLINE

Simple searches in Ovid may be inefficient for busy clinicians compared to PubMed, however, to ensure a comprehensive and systematic literature search, using Ovid MEDLINE in addition to PubMed is recommended.

A Multimodal Intervention to Reduce Urinary Catheter Use and Associated Infection at a Veterans Affairs Medical Center

After implementation of a quality improvement intervention to reduce urinary catheter use and associated urinary tract infections at a single hospital, UTIs were reduced by 39% (P = .04).

Based upon current understanding of the epidemiology of nosocomial urinary tract infections, guidelines for the prevention of catheter-associated urinary tract infection are presented.

Bacterial interference for prevention of urinary tract infection: a prospective, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind pilot trial.

Patients whose bladders became colonized with Escherichia coli 83972 were half as likely than noncolonized patients to develop UTI during the subsequent year.

Risk factors for febrile urinary tract infection in children with myelodysplasia treated by clean intermittent catheterization

A retrospective study of children with myelodysplasia who were treated by clean intermittent catheterization to identify the factors involved in the incidence of febrile urinary tract infection.

Prevention of catheter-associated urinary tract infection. An additional measure.

Their geographic dispersal, especially separation of those infected from those noninfected, warrants trial as an adjunctive measure for prevention of UTIc.

Appropriateness of Use of Indwelling Urinary Catheters in Patients Admitted to the Medical Service

Risk for inappropriate catheterization was independent of age, gender, functional status, and mental status at admission, and Preventive measures should focus on increasing awareness among healthcare providers.

Is there evidence for recommending silver-coated urinary catheters in guidelines?

We evaluated the available literature on effectiveness of silver-coated versus uncoated catheters for the prevention of urinary tract infections in catheterized patients stratified by sex, systemic

Excluding patients infected on admission the urine remained sterile throughout the period of catheterisation in 52% of those receiving chlorhexidine but in only 26% of a control group of patients.

Systematic review of risk factors for urinary tract infection in adults with spinal cord dysfunction.

A systematic review of controlled clinical trials, cohort, and cross-sectional studies that assessed risk factors for UTI and included bacteriuria or UTI as an outcome found that persons using intermittent catheterization had fewer infections than those with indwelling catheters.

Antibiotic policies for short-term catheter bladder drainage in adults.

There was weak evidence that antibiotic prophylaxis compared to giving antibiotics when clinically indicated reduced the rate of symptomatic urinary tract infection in female patients with abdominal surgery and a urethral catheter for 24 hours.
