Preventing Pediatric CAUTI
- Age appropriate care
- Allergy assessment
- Self contamination risk
Pediatric CAUTI prevention is procedurally similar to adult CAUTI prevention. Published guidelines suggest that a practice bundle that includes practices such as minimizing the inappropriate use of urinary catheters and improving adherence to aseptic technique when placing or manipulating a catheter can be effective. This course explores prevention techniques in addition to special considerations that accompany the use of indwelling urinary catheters in the pediatric population.
