Priority 23 from the Healthcare Associated Infections Project
|UNCERTAINTY: Should the requirement for urinary catheters be periodically reviewed in people with long-term urinary catheter? (Priority 23)
|JLA question ID
|Frequently, once it is decided that a patient requires long-term urinary catheters, they are not assessed as to whether they require these catheters again. There is uncertainty about how many people will benefit by reassessment of the requirement and whether such a policy will be benefical or harmful on an average to all people having long-term urinary catheters.
