SIDE New Datix subcategory for CAUTI.jpg

Many catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) are a source of preventable harm therefore a subcategory has been made available in the Datix system to record such adverse events: Subcategory – ‘Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infection (CAUTI)’.

Recording of CAUTI within the DATIX system will enable learning at local level, optimise patient care outcomes, preserve safety of future catheterised patients and provide assurances in response to recent HAI inspection requirements.
