Abstract

Background: CAUTI bundle care aims to reduce catheter associated urinary tract infection, enhance quality of life and promote comfort. The present study aimed to assess the effect of CAUTI bundle approach on urinary catheter associated infection rate among children admitted in paediatric unit of KGMU.

Methods: Quantitative research approach was done on 46 children who were admitted in paediatric unit, KGMU, Lucknow. Purposive sampling technique was used. Socio demographic was obtained by socio demographic Performa, CAUTI was assessed by urine culture test and symptomatic assessment of UTI.

Results: The result revealed that on the basis of urine culture results, in exposed group majority of the children that is 18 (78.26%) was sterile and rest 5 (21.73%) was infected and in unexposed group 13 (56.52%) children was sterile and remain 10 (43.47%) was infected. And on the basis of symptomatic assessment for CAUTI, in exposed group majority of the children that is 17 (73.91%) are less symptomatic and remain 6 (26.08%) was more symptomatic for CAUTI and in unexposed group most of the children that is 14 (60.86%) was less symptomatic for CAUTI and rest 9 (39.13%) was more symptomatic for CAUTI.
