On the CUSP: STOP CAUTI

Complications associated with catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) result in increased length of stay, patient discomfort, excess health care costs, and sometimes mortality. Fortunately, most cases of CAUTI are preventable.

On the CUSP: Stop CAUTI aims to reduce mean rates of CAUTI in U.S. hospitals. The initiative is working with state organizations and hospitals across the country to implement the Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program (CUSP) and CAUTI reduction practices in hospital units.
