Hospitals find Theraworx highly effective thwarting costly Urinary Tract Infections
Date:8/21/2013

ASHEVILLE, N.C., Aug. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Data from multiple in-service clinical trials and research studies involving hundreds of patients using Theraworx™ at more than a dozen hospitals are showing positive results and signaling progress battling one of the most prevalent healthcare-associated infections (HAI), catheter-associated urinary tract infections, or CAUTI.  

Theraworx is an all-natural, skin-friendly topical solution that is applied for pre-insertion and post-catheter perineal cleaning, and incontinence skin care treatment.  It has become a key factor at medical facilities adopting a patient-focus safety strategy to address CAUTIs, the greatest single source of HAIs, costing U.S. hospitals $3 billion annually.

Some 900,000 patients a year develop a CAUTI while in U.S. hospitals, and 13,000+ patients die annually when bacteria from that infection enters the kidneys, making this an important patient safety issue.  A typical 165-bed hospital can incur more than $525,000 annually in costs to fight urinary tract infections.  Medicare does not pay hospitals for CAUTI readmissions, which can cost upwards of $10,000 or more per patient.

Notable progress
Over the past three years there has been extensive data analysis from trials of Theraworx in clinical settings.  Most notably, a large academic medical center in the Midwest conducted sequential 90-day trials covering more than 400 patients in its ICU and operating rooms.  Theraworx was used prior to Foley catheter insertion for peri-care and cleaning, achieving greater than 70 percent CAUTI reduction in each test period.

"Hospitals are realizing that if they initiate a proactive program to curb CAUTI and other infections with our proven protocol that they will see improvement quickly," said Steve Woody, president of Avadim LLC.  "This is particularly significant n
