About Catheter Care
Catheters are tricky medical devices and can quickly become a headache for the inexperienced. Thankfully, Agility Health takes the stress out of catheter care thanks to our personable and licensed nurses and caregivers. Our nurses and caregivers perform and administer in-home care with warmth, compassion, and expertise. They will help patients with changing out their catheters and keep them safe from infections and complications due to poor, inexperienced care.
Our trained nurses will assist patients with catheter care management. We will make sure that the catheter is working properly and we will discuss any issues such as discomfort and leakage. Services we provide include changing the catheter, infection prevention, and educating patients, families, and/or primary caregivers regarding proper care and maintenance. It’s important to remember that improper care can result in infections and other long-term damage, so let Agility Health help with sanitary and respectful in-home catheter care.
Considerate & Hygienic Catheter Care at Home
Adjusting to life with a catheter is often difficult and stressful especially when it comes to proper care for the device. At Agility Health, we provide excellent in-home catheter care for those who need assistance for any reason. We strive to make our clients as comfortable as possible with responsible and gentle catheter care.
Our team of discreet nurses and caregivers is overseen and coordinated by our knowledgeable and helpful care managers. These care managers put each patient’s customized in-home care plan into action while working with doctors and family members to ensure care is being emphasized with quality and comfort. Agility Health’s care managers are also able to provide knowledgeable information on the latest catheter devices, as well as coordinate hospital care such as admissions, surgical appointments. We’ll guarantee a patient’s wishes are met so they receive the highest quality catheter care possible.
How Our Catheter Care Works
Managing your catheter can be a struggle without the help of a trained medical professional. Agility Health’s skilled nurses can teach individuals how to properly care for their catheter. Catheter education keeps the patient from dealing with much larger health issues than incontinence. 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. Preventing a urinary tract infection is very important and our nurses will teach patients how to change their catheter, prevent urinary tract infection, and care for the urethra and surrounding area.
Incorrect catheter care can also lead to damage of the penis, vulva, or urethra. Our nurses are knowledgeable about many different kinds of catheters including standard catheters, Indwelling Foley catheters, and condom catheters (Texas catheters). Our skilled nurses can assist with 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. 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 today.
