Abstract From 5% to 10% of residents of long-term–care facilities have urinary drainage managed with chronic indwelling catheters. These residents are always bacteriuric, usually with a complex microbiological flora of two to five organisms and a biofilm on the catheter that may contribute to obstruction. Residents with chronic indwelling catheters have increased morbidity from urinary infection compared to bacteriuric residents without chronic catheters. The most effective means to prevent… Expand
Catheter-Related Urinary Tract Infection: Practical Management in the Elderly
TLDR
Treatment algorithms with a goal of limiting inappropriate treatment of asymptomatic bacteriuria have been developed and guidelines for prevention of catheter-acquired urinary infection should be followed. Expand

TLDR
The most important interventions to prevent bacteriuria and infection are to limit indwelling catheter use and, whenCatheter use is necessary, to discontinue the catheter as soon as clinically feasible. Expand
Manage catheter-related urinary tract infection in the elderly in long-term care by limiting catheter use and avoiding the inappropriate use of antimicrobials
Elderly residents of long-term care facilities often require chronic indwelling catheterization for the management of urinary voiding. As a result of urethral catheterization, residents areExpand
Chronic Catheter Associated Complications and Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infection
TLDR
Avoiding placement of indwelling catheters and promoting early removal of the catheter when appropriate are the most effective interventions to prevent CAUTI. Expand
Long-term urinary catheter-associated urinary tract infection (UTI)
TLDR
Regular catheter change and newer catheter materials have not been proven to reduce the incidence of symptomatic UTIs in those with a long-term urinary catheter in situ. Expand
Localization of Urinary Tract Infection In Catheterized Adults Patients: Experience With The Bladder Washout Technique
TLDR
The study showed a higher prevalence of CAUTI in Hospitalized patients in LASUTH, and Contrary to previously held opinion, majority of the infections were upper Urinary Tract infections. Expand
Catheter associated urinary tract infection within care of the elderly facilities: results from a Scottish pilot study
TLDR
The CAUTI surveillance protocol and data definitions appeared to be robust and easily adapted for use in care home settings thus providing a valuable surveillance tool for these resident populations. Expand
Preventing Infection Associated with Urethral Catheter Biofilms
TLDR
Prevention of CA-UTI includes avoidance ofCatheter use, correct catheter insertion and maintenance and efficient use of programs to monitor catheter use and duration. Expand

TLDR
Evidence-based practice guidelines for the care of indwelling urinary catheters in acute, long-term, and home care settings are reviewed and practices that are no longer recommended, as well as present research on the use of silver alloyCatheters and their role in preventing infection are summarized.

Evaluating the potential of removing long-term urinary catheters among home care recipients in Taiwan
TLDR
None of the long-term urinary catheterized home care recipients in this study demonstrated the ability of self-voiding, and those who had a residual-urine volume more than 160 cc were more likely to be people with diabetes and physical dependence. Expand

The chronic indwelling catheter and urinary infection in long-term-care facility residents.
TLDR
From 5% to 10% of residents of long-term–care facilities have urinary drainage managed with chronic indwelling catheters, usually with a complex microbiological flora of two to five organisms and a biofilm on the catheter that may contribute to obstruction. Expand
Complications of chronic indwelling urinary catheters among male nursing home patients: a prospective study.
TLDR
None of the clinical factors examined, including age, nutritional status, stool incontinence, diabetes mellitus, episodes of catheter blockage and the use of chronic suppressant antimicrobial therapy, was associated with the development of symptomatic infection. Expand
Chronic indwelling catheter replacement before antimicrobial therapy for symptomatic urinary tract infection.
TLDR
Clinical and bacteriological outcomes are improved when long-term indwelling catheters are replaced before initiating antimicrobial therapy for symptomatic urinary tract infection in elderly nursing home residents. Expand
Low risk of bacteremia during catheter replacement in patients with long-term urinary catheters.
TLDR
Bacteremia induced by routine replacement of long-term urinary catheters occurred in 4.2% of replacements in geriatric patients, but did not have a detectable clinical relevance in this study. Expand

TLDR
To the extent that the indwelling catheter is effective in decubitus ulcer prevention and/or management, long-term catheterization may diminish the risk of bacteremia or death from soft tissue infection, which should be examined in future studies. Expand
Bacteriuria and bacteraemia in patients with long-term indwelling catheters--a domiciliary study.
TLDR
Bacteraemia was demonstrated after 20 of 197 changes of urethral catheter and after one of 19 changes of suprapubic catheter; but no patient had pyrexia or other symptoms, but two had rigors on other occasions. Expand
Fever, bacteremia, and death as complications of bacteriuria in women with long-term urethral catheters.
TLDR
In the individual patient, these risks should be weighed against benefits of patient comfort, family satisfaction, and prevention and management of decubitus ulcers. Expand
Bacterial changes in the urine samples of patients with long-term indwelling catheters.
TLDR
Routine monthly cultures are of little predictive value in patients with indwelling catheters and this study does not support the efficacy of sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim prophylaxis in such patients. Expand
A prospective microbiologic study of bacteriuria in patients with chronic indwelling urethral catheters.
TLDR
The very high prevalence of bacteriuria--virtually 100%--was a result of a high incidence caused by many different species combined with the prolonged residence of some gram-negative bacilli in the catheter and urinary tract. Expand
Restriction of long-term indwelling urethral catheterisation in the elderly.
TLDR
More than half of the catheters that were inserted in the hospital could be removed within 4 weeks of admission to the centre, implying that a more restricted use of indwelling catheter in hospitals is possible. Expand
