Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
CAUTI or a catheter-associated urinary tract infection is an infection of the urinary system, including the bladder and kidneys.
Germs (such as bacteria or yeasts) do not normally live in these areas, but if introduced via a catheter, an infection may occur.
At UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, we prevent CAUTIs by taking precautions with both the insertion and maintenance of catheters:
On average, we see one urinary tract infection for every 1,700 days that patients have urinary catheters in our hospital.
Children's Hospital's main campus is located in the Lawrenceville neighborhood. Our main hospital address is:
