Comparison of metrics used to track central-line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) and catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) across a regional network.
The paradoxical relationship between standardized infection ratio and standardized utilization ratio for catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) in contrast to central-line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs), in addition to CAUTI definition challenges, incentivizes hospitals to focus their prevention efforts on urine culture stewardship rather than catheter avoidance and care.
