The use of the urinary catheter bag in the urinary catheter care procedure has helped reduce the number of infections that occur in the long run. Patients who choose to use the urinary catheter bag as a means to collect urine when they need to do so will have a decreased risk of developing an infection in the bladder. This is because the bag helps reduce the amount of urine that is collected in the bladder.
When there is less urine collected, there is less opportunity for bacteria to develop and multiply. This will help to lower the chances of developing a UTI.
