Brief Summary:

This study proposes to expand upon previous research by studying the effects of a urinary-catheter removal alert on duration of urinary catheter use and frequency of CAUTIs with a large, randomized controlled trial within a three-hospital academic medical center.

Hypothesis The proposed urinary-catheter removal alerts will decrease the number of catheter days and decrease the number of catheter associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs), but will not affect the catheter re-insertion rate.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Infection Due to Indwelling Urinary Catheter Other: CAUTI Decision Support Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Primary Objectives

  • Specific Aim 1: Investigate the effect of a urinary-catheter removal alert on the rate of catheter associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs).
  • Specific Aim 2: Investigate the effect of a urinary-catheter removal alert on the number of catheter days.
  • Specific Aim 3: Evaluate the effect of a urinary-catheter removal alert on the rate of catheter re-insertion.
  • Specific Aim 4: Evaluate the effect of a urinary-catheter removal alert on overall mortality in patients with indwelling catheters.
