Comparing catheter-associated urinary tract infection prevention programs between Veterans Affairs nursing homes and non-Veterans Affairs nursing homes.
Nursing homes provided baseline information about their infection prevention programs to assess strengths and gaps related to catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) prevention via a needs assessment questionnaire. Among nursing homes participating in an AHRQ-funded collaborative, VA and non-VA nursing homes differed in their approach to CAUTI prevention. Best practices from both settings should be applied universally to create an optimal infection prevention program within emerging integrated healthcare systems.
