Abstract

Background: After a while the usage of urinary catheters leads to UTI which for the patient means inconvenience, suffering and pain. Aim: The aim of this study was to illuminate how to prevent UTI from patients with indwelling catheter. Method: This study was a literature review in which the articles have been searched for in PubMed, Cinahl and ELIN@Kristianstad. Results: It is important for the nurse to clean the periutheral area before inserting the catheter, and has the knowledge of different cathetermaterials. Silver alloy-coated catheters reduces the rate of UTI. Discussion: It is important to remove the catheter when it is no longer needed in order to let the patient regain the integrity and self-esteem and also be relieved from discomfort, something that is important to every patient and for the nurse to observe.
