24 hours urine collection for non toilet trained patients

  • 24 hours urine collection for non toilet trained patients

    Hello,

    We are facing some problems in the 24 h urine collections in patients who are not toilet trained, what is your practice in this regard? Do you have any method other than inserting a foley, I mean less invasive like a condom connected to foley bags or any other idea…the purpose is to decrease the risk for infection and trauma during insertion.

    Looking forward for your reply.
