These comprehensive materials include an easy-to-remember CAUTI bundle in poster and animated form, instructional videos with Diane Newman, a renowned expert on urinary issues, an interactive timeline with facts and figures on CAUTI, and additional downloadable educational materials for use by those working to lower and eliminate catheter-associated UTIs in their facilities.

Lowering the high cost of CAUTI.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that the direct medical costs of treating healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) in the United States is as high as $45 billion per year.1

Catheter-associated UTIs, the most common HAI, represent 36% of total HAIs.  Because CAUTIs have been a prevalent patient safety issue, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in October 2008 issued a new regulation to end reimbursement for the additional costs incurred from preventable CAUTI.

A national hospital survey, administered by the University of Michigan, examined prevention practices in use between 2005 and 2009. While CAUTI prevention practices remain inadequate, the only practice used by 50% or more of the hospitals was portable bladder volume ultrasound.3

As the manufacturer of BladderScan® portable bladder volume ultrasound instruments, Verathon is proud to play a key role in supporting CAUTI prevention education that can help nurses and infection preventi
