Braden score may be associated with time to onset of catheter-associated urinary tract infection in high-risk patients: Lessons learned from a root cause analysis tool.
Timely removal of the urinary catheter is an important strategy for decreasing catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs). Data were aggregated from an electronic root cause analysis tool, which is used to collect and guide discussions on patient factors following a CAUTI event at our facility. This identified the Braden Scale score as a possible important predictor of early-onset CAUTI in high-risk patients and could potentially be leveraged for early action in urinary catheter removal.
