Urinary tract infection (UTI) is the most common type of healthcare-associated infection, accounting for approximately 36% of HAIs. Of those UTIs, 80% are catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI). Annually, urinary catheters are inserted in over 5 million patients in acute care hospitals and long-term care facilities. CAUTI infections create patient distress, discomfort, and substantial care burdens and costs. This course is designed to improve patient outcomes by helping you to understand best practices in preventing CAUTI.

Sedation and anesthesia are important risk factors for morbidity and mortality during operative or invasive procedures. In the past, sedation was reserved for use in the operating room by anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists. Lower levels of sedation can be administered safely in procedural settings where loss of consciousness is not required, but even lower levels of sedation have risks. Administering sedation safely is critical to: • Help prevent negative outcomes • Comply with regulations This course will cover: • How moderate sedation relates to other types of anesthesia services, and how this affects patient safety • Important information about the administration of moderate sedation and analgesia, including processes and procedures that occur before and after administration
