AHRQ releases CAUTI, HAI toolkit for long-term care facilities

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality released a new toolkit that focuses on reducing catheter-associated urinary tract infections and improving hospital-acquired infection practices in long-term care facilities.

The toolkit provides resources to encourage leadership and staff engagement, teamwork and safety culture at these facilities. It is based on principles and methods from the Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program. It was developed during a three-year project in which long-term care facilities successfully reduced CAUTI rates.
