What is this measure?
Urinary Catheter Removal measure is the percentage of surgery whose urinary catheter is removed on the first or second day following surgery.
Why is it important?
When urinary catheters are left in place too long after surgery, patients can develop infections. By removing urinary catheters within two days following surgery, Monroe Clinic helps prevent infections from developing.
