what steps must you do to clean catheter. can you gat an infection from reusing a foley catheter?
Its been a long time since I've had to boil catheters. Even medicaid pays for new ones each time. Its dangerous to reuse them, because of infection. If you do they have to be washed thoroughly and boiled for a time. Then handled carefully to keep clean. There are just too many ways of reintroducing bacteria into the bladder.
