Kada su u pitanju urinarni kateteri, infekcija je gotovo izvjesna kod svih bolesnika koji su kateterizirani 30 dana. Medicinske sestre, koje u procesu njege najdulje borave uz bolesnika, u pravilu prve registriraju te infekcije. Povjerenstvo vodi evidenciju i obavlja stalnu kontrolu metoda i postupaka, a brine se i o cjelokupnom nadzoru nad radom u bolnici, o dezinfekciji i sterilizaciji, te obavlja nadzor nad vodoopskrbom i prometom rublja, hrane i otpadnih tvari u bolnici.
