Catheter change at TG Hospital
Stuart found that there was still slight "cuffing" and minor bleeding after the change, but Rachael felt there was an improvement after the last two changes. Discussed flushing with citrus juices to alleviate problems with sediment in tubing. Stuart performed a bladder wash and trained staff in it's use. Stuart authorised Rachael's staff to do the bladder wash when needed and is happy to confirm that should professionals/doctors require it.
