Medline’s Urological Solution is a comprehensive urinary catheter management program that partners with clinicians to create nurse-driven strategies that change habits around indwelling urinary catheter use and duration to achieve consistently low catheter associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) rates. This solution helps caregivers address urology across the continuum through clinically-proven evidence-based products and practice, broad educational offerings and outcomes management for optimal urinary catheter outcomes.
CAUTIs account for 30-40% of the organization’s hospital acquired infections each year. We review current products and front line staff’s knowledge and build a customized education program. Ongoing education is provided in three ways to reinforce and sustain change:
