CUSP/Stop CAUTI

CUSP/Stop CAUTI Collaborative of Missouri (Password protected pages)

Catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) are the most common type of hospital-acquired infection in U.S. hospitals and account for 35% of all such infections. The estimated cost per year for CAUTIs is $565 million, and the estimated number of deaths per year is 8,205. Yet, the vast majority of CAUTIs are preventable. The Health Research & Educational Trust (HRET), through a contract with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), and in partnership with the Johns Hopkins University Quality and Safety Research Group (JHU QSRG), the Keystone Center for Patient Safety and Quality of the Michigan Health & Hospital Association (MHA Keystone), and investigators from the University of Michigan are implementing a patient safety program to dramatically reduce CAUTI nationwide.

The key project goals for this AHRQ funded national project to implement CUSP are as follows:

  • Reduce mean catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) rates in participating ICUs and other clinical units by 25% over two years;
  • To disseminate CUSP educational modules to improve patient safety

This project began in March, 2011, and runs through December, 2012.
