For decades, nothing new has come along to care for men with urinary incontinence. In hospitals, 15%-25% of patients are placed on catheters, joined to a urine output bag. Staff spend countless hours positioning, cleaning and worrying about Foley catheters, which can cause urinary tract infections, the most common healthcare-associated infection and a condition not reimbursed by payers.
In post-acute care, many patients are transitioned to condom catheters. Finding the right size condom catheter is not easy, and staff can waste several trying them out. Condom catheters often leak onto the patient and bed linens and can be painful when removed. IAD is a common outcome.
Nothing new, that is, until now. The QuickChangeTM Wrap is the only solution designed exclusively for male UI. It is adjustable to fit every patient and can be placed in seconds without moving or even waking the patient. One wrap absorbs half of the average daily urine output, reducing incidence of CAUTIs, urethral scarring and IAD. Nurses are freed to care for patients.
