Providing Patients with Catheter-Based Care

This information will assist you in caring for your urine (Foley) at home. Arrange for placing a urine tube (a tiny, flexible tube) in your bladder to drain your urine (pee). A water balloon is trapped within one of you. Cleaning your catheter, changing your water supply bags, and washing your water bags should all be done regularly. While a catheter is inserted into your body, you may notice some blood or pee, mainly when walking or moving your bowels (pooping). This is OK as long as pee is being drawn into the water bag. Otherwise, contact your healthcare practitioner. Consume 1 to 2 cups of the liquids every two hours while wearing your catheter.

Catheter Cleaning:

● Bathing may clean your catheter.
● A mild soap like Dove Water
● Wash hands for 20 seconds.
● Wash your vagina with soap and water.
● Reattach the foreskin and clean the area, including the penis.
● Women should separate labels and scrub the area from front to back.
● Purify the urethra (urinary incontinence), the entry point for the catheter.
● Clean the catheter from the inside out.Keep the catheter where it enters your body to prevent discomfort.
● Clean and dry the area.

After removing the previous Cath-Secure, use the new Cath-Secure to secure the catheter to your leg.

● Modifications to Your Drainage Bag
● You should change your water supply bag twice a day.
● After showering, switch the night bag to the leg.
● Change your leg bag into a night bag the night before you go to bed.
● You will need the following supplies:
● A clean washcloth (not one that has been used for bathing) or a 4" by 4" piece of gauze

Water pack for the night:

● Was hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds.
● Put the pee water bag in the toilet. Ensure the water bag flush does not touch the bathroom or drain container.
● A clean cloth or gauze under the connector prevents leakage.
● Remove the used bag and lube the catheter.
● Alcohol-pad the catheter's tip.
● Wipe the connection with another alcohol pad in a new bag.
● Release the catheter from the clean bag.
● Audit every communication. You should direct any tube kinks or twists.
● Follow these guidelines to prevent infection when using a catheter:
● Keep the drain bag on the floor and below your bladder at all times.
● Fix the catheter tubing to your thigh so it cannot move.
● Do not sleep on your catheter or block the tube's urine flow.
● Cleaning the catheter daily is required.
