Using Urinary Leg Bag & Foley Catheter
Urinary Drainage Leg Bag is attached to the patient leg to allow free movement and is hidden under the cloths to be more discreet and comfortable.
Attaching and emptying the Urinary Leg Bag.
- Wash hands properly with soap and water.
- When emptying the drainage bag, do not touch the tip when you let the urine flow out of the bag into the toilet.
- Various types of drainage bags open types: a drain spout that you remove from its sleeve, a clamp that you open to the side, or an opening that you twist.
- Place a towel under the connection between the catheter and the bag.
- Pinch off the catheter tube so that urine doesn't leak out.
- Disconnect the urinary catheter tube from the current bag with a twisting motion. Continue pinching of the catheter tube so that urine does not leak out.
- Be careful not to pull on the catheter. Place the old drainage bag on the towel.
- Prepare to place the leg bag in the catheter tube from which you just disconnected the old bag. Remove the protective coating from the tip of the leg bag drainage tube and clean the tip with an alcohol pad, wiping away from the opening to avoid getting the tube dirty. Insert the tip in the catheter tube.
- Fasten the straps of the leg bag to thigh and secure the catheter to leg with tape. Leave slack in the catheter so that you don't put too much pressure on the bladder, urethra, and other parts of the body.
- Don't over tighten the straps on the leg bag to prevent impeding circulation.
