Urinary Tract Infection Care Plan

A Urinary Tract Infection, UTI, is a bacterial infection that affects any part of the urinary tract. Symptoms include frequently feeling the need and, or an actual need to urinate, pain during urination, strong smelling urine and cloudy urine.

The main causal agent is Escherichia coli. Although urine contains a variety of fluids, salts and waste products it does not usually have bacteria in it but when bacteria gets into the bladder or kidney, the bacteria may multiply in the urine and may cause a Urinary Tract Infection.

Urine is normally sterile, and the normal flow of urine usually prevents bacteria from growing in the urinary tract. When urine stays in the bladder, however bacteria have a chance to grow and infect the urinary tract.

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