What to buy with Covidien Urine Drainage Bag
Covidien Dover Urine Drainage Bag Instructions
- It should be placed near the foot of the bed and below the level of the patient's hip.
- Drain tubing should be secured to the draw sheet with the sheeting clip to provide a continuous downward-sloping path to the drainage bag.
- When transporting the patient, do not place the drainage bag on the abdomen or between the legs of the patient.
- Excess tubing should be arranged to permit "straight line" drainage or coiled in a manner that does not allow the tubing to kink or fall below the level of the drainage bag.
- To promote optimum drainage, position the drainage tubing over the patient's leg. This is especially important if the patient is obese.
- Never allow the drainage bag to be placed on the floor.
How to care?
- Clean Hands: Before handling the drainage bag or performing any care procedures, ensure that you thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Secure Positioning: Properly secure the drainage bag in a location that allows it to hang freely and not put pressure on the drainage tube or catheter. This helps maintain a continuous flow of urine and prevents kinks or obstructions.
- Avoid Contamination: The drainage bag should always remain below the level of the bladder to prevent urine from flowing back into the bladder. Make sure the drainage tube does not come into contact with the floor or any contaminated surfaces.
- Regular Emptying: Monitor the urine level in the bag regularly and empty it when it is about two-thirds full or according to the instructions provided by your healthcare professional. Use the provided twist valve or lever system to drain the urine into a suitable container or toilet.
- Hygiene and Sterility: Avoid touching the inside of the drainage bag or the tip of the drainage outlet to maintain sterility. If accidental contact occurs, clean the affected area with an alcohol wipe or a mild antiseptic solution. Do not reuse a disposable drainage bag.
- Tubing Maintenance: Inspect the drainage tube regularly for any signs of kinks, blockages, or leaks. If you notice any issues, consult your healthcare professional for guidance. Replace the drainage bag if the tubing becomes damaged or compromised.
- Secure Connections: Ensure that all connections between the drainage bag, catheter, and tubing are securely fastened. Loose or insecure connections can lead to leakage or dislodgment.
