CathetersI saw this article on BBC News and need to pass it on to you.  Please read it.

Industry ‘must do more’ to improve urinary catheters

When I was first diagnosed with urine retention I was instructed  to buy reusable red rubber catheters.  After the use of the catheter I was instructed to wash it with dial soap and let it air dry on a paper towel.

Only to find out later that other countries and even some major medical facilities

DO NOT RECOMEND REUSING INTERMITTANT CATHETERS BECAUSE OF INFECTION.

I think we as a community need to demand better care.

OK that was my soap box.  Have a safe day.
