A catheter is a medical device that can be inserted inside the body whether permanent or temporary to treat diseases. A catheter inside a body is called an indwelling catheter. It depleted urine from bladder going into a bag. The causes of having a catheter inside a body is because of leakage, unable to urinate, and the possible effects brought by health problem or operation.
Certified Nurse Assistants should make sure of the proper working condition of the catheter. Cleaning catheter is part of the CNA’s daily activity and it should be done properly to avoid infections.
Here is the video on how to properly perform a catheter care.
