Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) are the most common hospital-acquired bacterial infection among patients.  

According to the latest research, many hospitals still do not monitor catheter duration despite the fact that every day a patient is fitted with a urinary catheter, the likelihood of acquiring an infection significantly increases.
