Foley Catheter

  1. Is there any EBP for F/C for Hospice patients. How often should be replaced, irrigated. Could you share any policies.

    Where I work we use the current CDC recommendations.

    We don't routinely replace and only irrigate if needed.

    I work in a Urology Clinic and our patients that have a chronic in dwelling catheter come in every 4-6 weeks to have it changed. Beyond that, things get very nasty and they almost always test positive for UTI.
