Root Cause analysis
You work in a small, long-term care facility and are often the only registered nurse working on the unit. Many of your patients have indwelling foley catheters. Recently, several patients have developed bladder infections, after having a unit nosocomial urinary tract infection (UTI) rate of less than 1% for the past year. In fact, the facility has always prided itself on carefully following established evidence-based policies and procedures, both in catheter insertion and in routine catheter care. When you talk to the chief nursing officer about the problem, she asks you to investigate the problem and report back to her. You decide to sit down and make a list of the structure and process indicators you could examine to find the cause of the problem. You have created a task force with other charge nurses to sit down and perform a root cause analysis.
