Question:

Drainage bags from urinary catheters should always

A Be kept below the level of the bladdar
explanation

In order to prevent urine from backflowing into the bladder, drainage bags from an indwelling Foley catheter should be kept below the the level of the bladder. It also allows gravity to assist in draining the tubing. Checked that the tubing is not kinked or compressed. Depending on the reason for the catheter, urine may have an unusual appearance; ask the nurse what is abnormal for the patient. Monitor and record the color of the urine, as well as observations such as sediment, cloudiness, or blood. Follow your facility’s policy or the patient’s care plan regarding how often to change the urinary drainage bag.

There are definitely a few mistakes in this app, some of the answers are just plain wrong so make sure this is not your only source of study material. Other than that this app is very helpful.

I would love to give this app 5 stars but in the Nursing Skills section it does not allow you to go on to part 7. After you get to part 6 it either just never loads or it tells you to go to part 7 and does absolutely nothing.
