Effective January 1, 2017, the new NPSG for Joint Commission accredited nursing care centers will require nursing care centers to “implement evidence-based practices to prevent indwelling CAUTIs.” The same NPSG, already applicable to accredited hospitals and critical access hospitals, includes several revisions to its elements of performance (EPs) to align with current scientific evidence as documented in the 2014 update

The new Elements of Performance (EPs), include:
  • Educate staff and licensed independent practitioners involved in the use of indwelling urinary catheters about CAUTI and the importance of infection prevention.
  • Develop written criteria, using established evidence-based guidelines, for placement of an indwelling urinary catheter.
  • Follow written procedures based on established evidence-based guidelines for inserting and maintaining an indwelling urinary catheter.
  • Measure and monitor CAUTI prevention processes and outcomes in high-volume areas.
