Catheter Nursing Care Plan



Ref: CPP018

Catheter Nursing Care Plan

Urinary catheterisation is a medical procedure used to drain and collect urine from the bladder. A thin flexible tube is inserted into the body either through the urethra or through a hole in the abdomen. The catheter is then guided into the bladder, allowing urine to flow through it and into a drainage bag.

A catheter may be prescribed to remove urine from the bladder if a person cannot control their bladder due to nerve damage or to treat urinary incontinence, loss of bladder control.

It can also be used where there is incomplete emptying of the bladder, which if left untreated could lead to urinary tract infections or more seriously kidney damage. An intermittent catheter is where the catheter is temporarily inserted into the bladder and removed once the bladder is empty.

The Care Plan sets out a clear explanation of the resident’s issue, and will quickly guide the nurse or carer through the process of preparing a comprehensive, individual person centred Care Plan.
