This is a discussion on Odors in Hospice Nursing, part of Nursing Specialties ... I have heard that you can put topical antibiotics to help with horrific odors from decubitus ulcers...
I have heard that you can put topical antibiotics to help with horrific odors from decubitus ulcers that are necrotic. What about foul odor from urine? Can you do anything like this to help? Patient has bladder cancer, does not want UTI treated with antibiotics, (can't swallow meds anyway). We put a foley in, hoping to help some of the smell, but I don't think its helping.
Its green milky fluid coming from the foley. Cancer cells are invading his poor bladder.
