Program Overview:

Hospitals risk reduced reimbursement based on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Value Based Purchasing Program if patients experience never events (preventable outcomes) including catheter associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI). Most hospitals have implemented the 2014 CAUTI prevention guidelines including removing catheters earlier than ever before and reducing the number of catheters inserted. In 2019 the WOCN identified that no guidance existed for bedside clinicians for the selection of interventions post catheter removal. A Task Force reviewed the literature and convened an expert consensus panel to address gaps in the literature. A web-based decision support tool was subsequently developed and will be introduced in this session.
