CAUTI is preventable. CAUTI reduction improves patient care and outcomes, limits complications, and prevents extended lengths of stay. Reducing CAUTI is a shared responsibility of the health care team, including the emergency nurse. Communication about practice change is essential. Decision-making based on sound evidence, best practice, and established guidelines can foster positive nurse-driven change, resulting in safer patient care and improved patient outcomes.
