Project Information

Daily Multidisciplinary Reminder for Urinary Catheter Management in the Burn Center

Project Description: Two of the UF Health big aims are reducing variance in care and reducing harm. The aim of the project was to reduce the incidence of CAUTI in the Burn Center by decreasing urinary catheter utilization and increasing Burn Center RN and MD compliance with the UCMP. Creating buy in for earlier discontinuation of urinary catheters was especially challenging given the burn/wound populationÕs propensity for massive fluid shifts and insensible losses through open skin and wounds that is hard to quantify without use of indwelling catheters.
