Urinary Tube Insertion
Get procedures done at home. Save time, money, effort, and eliminate risks of hospital infections
What is a Urinary Tube?

Indwelling urinary catheter (IDC) is more commonly known as a urinary tube. IDC is used for patients with urinary incontinence (leakage), urinary retention (unable to urinate), or trauma/injury that affects one’s control over urination.

How does an IDC work?

    The urinary catheter is a hollow, flexible tube that is inserted via the urethra into the bladder to drain out urine. A small balloon is also inflated in the bladder to keep the catheter in place. The other end of the catheter tube leads to a urine bag that is meant to collect the urine.
    Our experienced, certified, and trained nurses will be deployed in the shortest time possible to change an IDC at home with the utmost care and professionalism.

How can we help?

How can our nurses help?

  • Regular change of the IDC (between 1-3 months, depending on the tube manufacturer)
  • Remove blockage of IDC due to urine residues
  • Fix dislodged IDC
  • Initial insertion of IDC
  • Training of family or helper on daily use and hygiene of the IDC

Note: A doctor’s memo is required to state that the patient is fit and safe for an initial IDC insertion at home
