Gentry, H. (2005). Using silver to reduce catheter-associated urinary tract infections. Nursing Standard, 19(50), 51-5

This article explores the use of silver-coated catheters as a solution to catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs). According to the author who is an infection prevention and control nurse, urinary tract infections are a common occurrence among patients who are hospitalized. The study used a sample size of 133 patients, who were monitored during the inpatient stay. The findings of this quantitative study suggest that silver-alloy hydrogel-coated Foley catheter is associated with reduced incidences of CUTIs rate. In particular, the study found out that use of silver-coated catheters is associated with a 33.5% reduction in the incidences of UTIs. The article recommends the use of silver-alloy-catheters for patients requiring an indwelling urethra catheter for longer than 48hours.
