CUSP: Physician Engagement

So, Ellen, what’s this project you’re talking about? We’re developing an improvement project to reduce Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infection rates on our floor. I think you’re familiar with the data. I believe they showed it at your last faculty meeting. Yes. They told us our unit has one of the highest rates in the hospital. It’s true. We really want to reduce our rates, and we believe you’d be the best person to lead this effort on the physician side. Thanks. What would I have to do? Well, it’s sometimes really hard to get doctors to sign this form. It allows a nurse to remove a catheter when all the conditions in the care guideline have been met. We’re going to need your help in getting docs to sign the form. I can do that. Great. Thanks.
