PICOT-Literature Review

Order Description

The PICO question I chose was in adult patients hospitalized in a long-term acute care facility (P), how does the use of a nurse-driven protocol for evaluating the appropriateness of short-term
urethral catheter continuation or removal (I), compared with no protocol (C), affect the number of catheter-days and CAUTI rates over a six-month postintervention period (T)?

Point out inconsistencies and contradictions in the literature and offer possible explanations for inconsistencies.
Preliminary conclusions on whether the evidence provides strong support for a change in practice or whether further research is needed to adequately address your inquiry
