The participants in the study are patients with indwelling urinary catheters in the Med/Surg Intensive Care Unit in HaysMed. The method of research is that 50 patients will receive CAUTI prevention protocol-based care for indwelling urinary catheters, and 50 will receive standardized catheter care.
