The purpose of this study was to analyze reflected status of evidence-based guideline on nursing textbook for prevention of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs). The subjects were 14 fundamental nursing textbooks consisting of 7 theoretical and 7 practical books published from March 2012 to March 2017. The evidence-based guideline was consisted of ninety-one recommendations for prevention of CAUTIs which were comprehensively collected from five guidelines. Collected data were analyzed using descriptive statistics. Reflected rate on theoretical and practical fundamental nursing textbooks were 23.0% and 15.2% respectively. The most reflected domains in theoretical and practical textbooks was catheter management and catheter insertion respectively. Sixteen out of 91 individual recommendations with more than 50% consistency rate were identified, and eight (50.0%) recommendations on the catheter maintenance area were identified. Lastly nine inconsistent recommendations were identified. And the most frequent discrepancies were indwelling catheterization for management of urinary incontinence, followed by regular changing indwelling catheter, clamping prior to removal and perineal care. In conclusion, we found that recommendations for the CAUTIs guidelines were poorly reflected on text books. Further revising fundamental nursing textbook should correct the discrepancies between textbooks and the guidelines.
