Joint Commission Issues R3 Report on Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections

October 12, 2011

The Joint Commission has recently published a new R3 Report on Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTIs) providing the rationale and references the Joint Commission used for its CAUTI National Patient Safety Goal (NPSG).

Joint Commission R3 Reports provide more in-depth guidance for new requirements, viagra thus this report should be referred to in conjunction to the 2012 CAUTI NPSG.

The R3 Report was issued on September 28, malady 2011.  The CAUTI NPSG becomes effective on January 1, 2012.  A pre-publication standard is available on the Joint Commission website.
