national project goals
National Project Goals

The Project Goals for CAUTI are to:

  • reduce mean CAUTI rates in participating clinical units by 25 percent; and
  • improve safety culture as evidenced by improved teamwork and communication by employing CUSP methodology.

CAUTI Project Data:

An Overview for Unit Teams

data collection why is it crucial to the project
DATA COLLECTION: Why is it crucial to the project?

Project’s data elements will help you:

  • Stay on course to achieve BOTH project goals
    • reduce your unit CAUTI rate by 25%
    • improve your unit’s culture of safety
  • Track your use of recommended technical work and CUSP interventions
  • Identify barriers to your progress
data collection where is it housed
DATA COLLECTION: Where is it housed?


  • Each registered unit will have protected access
  • MHA will provide webinar training and technical support for:
    • entering your data
    • running your own reports
cauti project data elements
  • Background/Culture Data:
    • Readiness Assessment
    • HSOPS: Baseline and Follow-up
  • Ongoing Data Submission:
    • Outcome data
    • Process Data (optional)
    • Team Checkup Tool
background culture data readiness assessment
  • PURPOSE: Tells us about your unit:
    • Size, type, patient demographics, etc.
    • Completed ONCE at start of project
    • Done via Survey Monkey by ONE person per unit
background culture data hospital survey on patient safety hsops
BACKGROUND/CULTURE DATA: Hospital Survey on Patient Safety (HSOPS)
  • PURPOSE: Standardized measure of safety culture for individual patient care unit (NOT hospital-wide)
    • Done twice: at the start of the project, and after the project intervention
    • Given to all unit staff
ongoing data collection outcome and process data
ONGOING DATA COLLECTION:Outcome and Process Data
  • OUTCOME DATA: What impact have we made on our 2 project goals:
    • reducing the CAUTI rate by 25% and
    • improving our unit’s culture of safety
  • PROCESS DATA (optional): Are we changing our daily work activities to reduce the risk of infection and make care safer, via BOTH:
    • technical work re: catheters
    • CUSP work (unit culture change)
cauti outcome data what do we collect

For the entire month (not just M-F) each enrolled unit must collect and submit:

  • Total # of patient days for that unit
  • Total # of indwelling urinary catheter days for that unit
  • Total # of CAUTI’s for that month

Result: CAUTI Rates and Catheter Prevalence

cauti outcome data what infrastructure do teams need
CAUTI OUTCOME DATA: What Infrastructure Do Teams Need?
  • Someone to collect the data
    • Should be knowledgeable about NHSN criteria
      • Should resolve any “questionable CAUTI” issues before entering data
      • Good resource: ICP
  • Someone to enter the data
    • Either into Care Counts or NHSN (if state level data will be imported from NHSN into Care Counts)
cauti outcome data when is it due
CAUTI OUTCOME DATA: When is it due?

Starts in MAY, with Three Phases

  • BASELINE (Monthly submission)

May, June, July 2014

  • IMPLEMENTATION (Monthly submission)

August and September 2014

  • SUSTAINABILITY: (1 month per quarter)

Dec 2014; March and June 2015

process data optional submission what do we collect
PROCESS DATA (optional submission): What Do We Collect?

DAILY, following the submission schedule:

  • # of patients on the unit that day
  • # of catheterized patients on the unit that day
  • Main reason why patient has a catheter TODAY
  • Where the catheter was inserted (on the floor, off the floor, unknown)

Result: Catheter Appropriateness Information

process data when is it due
PROCESS DATA: When is it due?

Starts in JULY, with Three Phases

Submit to Care Counts database on specific scheduled dates:

  • July 2014:M-F for 3 weeks
  • August and September 2014: on 16 scheduled days
  • After that: M-F for one week per quarter

(December 2014; March and June 2015)

Note: Process data submission is optional

cauti process data what infrastructure do teams need
CAUTI PROCESS DATA: What Infrastructure Do Teams Need?
  • Need a rounding process (not record review)
    • IDEAL: piggyback on existing unit rounds
    • We provide a model audit tool
  • Need a designated point person to:
    • Record data
    • Contact physicians for catheter removal order
    • Submit data to Care Counts
cauti process data what infrastructure do teams need1
CAUTI PROCESS DATA: What Infrastructure Do Teams Need?
    • Rounding for catheter appropriateness goes on daily, regardless of whether you choose to submit that data.

Remember: This rounding process IS the intervention!!!

ongoing data collection quarterly team checkup tool tct
ONGOING DATA COLLECTION:Quarterly Team Checkup Tool (TCT)

What it assesses:

  • Implementation of CUSP and CAUTI reduction activities
  • Team functioning
  • Barriers to project progress

Submit to Care Counts database at MHA

team checkup tool when is it due

Starts in AUGUST 2014

  • Team submits their consensus response quarterly
  • Reflects the team’s work for the previous 3 months
  • Schedule: due quarterly

AUGUST 2014 (reflects work of May-July), then: Nov 2014; Feb and May 2015

take home message
  • Data Collection Process:
    • Is front-end loaded, but manageable
    • You will have support from the national team
  • Remember:

Data drives change!

Daily rounding for catheter presence and appropriateness IS the intervention!
