Evidence-based protocol: diagnosis and treatment of catheter-associated urinary tract infection within adult neurocritical care patient population

, : Evidence-based protocol: diagnosis and treatment of catheter-associated urinary tract infection within adult neurocritical care patient population. Nursing Clinics of North America 49(1): 29-43

Evidence exists that patients requiring neurologic ICU admission have concomitant immunosuppression that makes them more prone to acquiring nosocomial infections. The risk of infection is highest in the acute phase after stroke, which may be attributed to stroke-induced immunodepression syndrome. Significant numbers of patients are being diagnosed inappropriately with catheter-associated urinary tract infection, for which they receive treatment that is not recommended. Protocol-based care enables providers to translate evidence into practice.
