Letter to the editor: Healthier hospital Stays

Re: Tri-City Voice; Vol. 10 No 24, pg 11

As a student nurse, we learn that nosocomial-hospital acquired infections, like catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CA-UTI), cause unnecessary discomfort for our clients which are highly preventable.

With the expertise of the 6 West Evidence-based practice Nursing Team, a reduction in the number of catheter days per client is a very simple intervention, yet very effective. Their research confirms what best practices are in the prevention of CA-UTIs.

Their research contribution was very informative because it displays the importance of how nurses, and student nurses like myself, can implement evidence-based practices to improve patient outcomes and provide quality patient care.
