CATHETER CARE

Nurse Making Notes During Home Visit With Senior CoupleManaging your catheter can be a struggle without the help of a trained medical professional. Agility Health’s skilled nurses can educate individuals how to properly care for their catheter.

Catheter education keeps the patient from dealing with much larger health issues than incontinence. Our nurses will teach patients how to:

  • Change their catheter
  • Prevent urinary tract infection
  • Care for the urethra and surrounding area

Preventing a urinary tract infection is very important. An infection can happen anywhere in the tract, from the kidneys to the urethra. It is caused by bacteria, and it can be cured using antibiotics. Incorrect catheter care can also lead to damage to the skin of the penis, vulva, or urethra.

Our nurses are knowledgeable about many different kinds of catheters including:

  • Standard catheters
  • Indwelling Foley catheter
  • Condom catheter (Texas catheter)

Our skilled nurses can help in all kinds of in-home care and will make sure to make frequent visits to ensure that the catheter is being used correctly and there is no infection. We will make sure that your catheter is working properly and we will discuss any issues such as discomfort. Proper health care is a necessity for anyone who is using a catheter. If you or a loved one has an incontinence issue and is using a catheter, give Agility Health a call.
