The pilot bladder management program involved orthopedic total joint patients for a period of six months. At the conclusion of the pilot, there was a decrease in both catheter-associated UTIs (CAUTIs), and a reduction in urinary occurrences in the six months after the program was initiated in comparison to the six months prior.
