Toolkit To Reduce CAUTI and Other HAIs in Long-Term Care Facilities
This section guides users through a step-by-step process to design, develop, and implement a quality improvement project to prevent healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), especially catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs), in the long-term care (LTC) setting.
Start with the Guide to Implementing a Program To Reduce Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections in Long-Term Care. The program is designed to improve resident safety in the LTC setting by implementing a combination of clinical and cultural/behavioral interventions from the Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program (CUSP). This guide provides guidance about how to start and implement a program, as well as information about the Long-Term Care Safety Toolkit Modules, educational bundles, and other resources to facilitate implementation.
