A Collective Voice: A Nursing Quality Council Journey in High Reliability

Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI) are the most common healthcare acquired condition according to the National Healthcare Safety Network. They account for anywhere from 2 to 4 additional hospital days and cost about $500 million dollars a year. Nursing by virtue of time at the bedside is at the forefront of processes and outcomes related to care of patients with catheters. At Penn State Hershey Medical Center our Nursing Clinical Quality Council (NCQC) has embraced the urgency to eliminate CAUTIs; and has applied High Reliability concepts to achieve optimal patient outcomes.
