Caring for Your Catheter

A clean catheter is essential for good urinary tract health

Maintain Urinary Health with a Catheter

For many people, a catheter is a vital aspect of everyday living. Being a catheter user means making sure it is properly cleaned on a daily basis to ensure that you do not develop an infection.
Before you clean your catheter, wash your hands with antibacterial soap. Use a mild soap and a clean washcloth to thoroughly, but gently, clean the urinary opening. Men need to clean the penis and if necessary, pull back the foreskin to clean the area. Women should clean front to back and part the labia for a proper cleaning.

Clean the catheter from where it enters your body and all the way down. Rinse and dry the area you have cleaned.

To order your replacement catheters, seek out BPI Medical Supply. Your health is our priority!
