  • Daily goals sheet for preventing catheter-associated urinary tract infections

    Patients' need for continued catheterization should be assessed each day. Nurses can complete daily assessments using tools such as an evidence-based CAUTI daily goals sheet. This daily serves as a proactive approach for reducing catheter days and minimizing the risk of infection. Each day, the CAUTI daily goals sheet prompts nurses caring for patients with indwelling catheters to determine the appropriateness of continuing the catheter or selecting a catheter for continued use that is designed to reduce the risk of infection. If patients do not meet criteria established on initial or continued daily assessment or the rationale defined in the initial physician's order, nurses should obtain orders for the catheter to be removed.
