Analysis of Hospital-Acquired Urinary Tract Infections at an Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital


Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are a leading cause of preventable, hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) in acute care hospitals in the United States and a major public health issue. This analysis aims to characterize the urinary tract infections (UTI) that occurred in all patients of Shirley Ryan AbilityLab (SRAlab), an acute inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Chicago, with the goal of identifying future intervention targets to reduce UTI incidence and reduce the phenomenon of urine overculturing. The results of this analysis will be used to design UTI-prevention interventions directed toward caregivers and patients, and strategies to prevent over-culturing and maximize resources, improving patient outcomes.
