Drainage bags are urinary bags designed to collect urine through a catheter inserted into the urinary bladder. The reasons for using a catheter and drainage bag could be urinary incontinence, urine retention or surgery.
Clean the urine drainage bag once every 3 days.
Buying a urinary drain bag will depend on individual requirement. There are different sizes available so it is necessary to match your bag with the catheter. Ensure the one you buy is of the right size and works effectively with the catheter you have bought.
A urinary leg bag should be replaced once or twice in a month. However, if it starts to smell bad or appears dirty, it should be replaced right away.
