- Sep 9, '12 by Tzs1981rnIf you can't get an order to reinsert and clamp, it might be worthwhile to try a urostomy bag if the drainage is thin enough. If it is a copious amount, you can connect the urostomy bag to a foley drainge bag. At least that way the patient's skin would not be exposed to the harsh fluids that are draining. Also a good way to provide concrete numbers regarding drainage rather than just telling the md it is draining a lot.
