The purpose of this study is to determine whether the daily nurse review of the indication of the urinary catheter compared to the everyday care of the working staff is effective to reduce the rate of catheter-associated urinary tract infection in adults hospitalized.
Healthcare-associated infection (HAI)in hospitalized patients are very frequent, especially the catheter-associated urinary tract infection, which prolongs the hospital stay and costs, and is about 3 times more likely to die during hospitalization than patients not infected.
The measures of aseptic insertion and closed systems of collection, as well as the rational use of the probe reduce the risk for infection.
A checklist that contains the agreed indications of catheter, related to obstruction, incontinence, skin lesions in sacral region, monitoring or surgical procedures allows the daily review of the indication of the probe. If the patient doesn´t meet at least one of the criteria, should be recommended the withdrawal of the catheter.
