Abstract in different language: The goal of this study was to summarize the conclusions of the studies on the efficiency of measures regarding the prevention of healthcare associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) and to focus on the specifics of nursing care in this area. The included studies and articles were searched for in the electronic databases focused on nursing and other medical fields. The sources were in full text (Cinahl, Ebsco, NursingOvid, ProQuest STM + Hospital Colection – Medline, Science Direct) and citation texts (PubMed, Scopus). They were used for secondary searching of relevant sources. We searched for the selected studies using the following keywords: prevention, risk, infection, urinary tract, efficiency, nursing, as well as according to our criteria (full text, reviewed periodicals, English language) and the period of publishing research results in the last 7 years (2011–2018). We finally included 11 studies that fulfilled the required criteria. The studies (qualitative, observational, quasi-experimental, descriptive) mostly specify the risky areas regarding healthcare associated urinary tract infections and deal with the efficiency of implemented preventative measures which arise from the recommended preventative guidelines CAUTI. Multifactorial measures seem to be positive – education of medical workers regarding the given issue, starting protocols regarding the care of patients with a urinary catheter, standards of care and accepting relevant indications regarding the catheterization of urinary bladder
