Medline - SafeSecure - Erase Cauti
SafeSecure Securement Device

CDC/HICPAC guidelines and the Joint Commission’s National Patient Safety Goals recommend securing catheter tubing to ensure unobstructed urine flow and drainage.1, 2 SafeSecure’s low-profile design is gentle on skin and minimizes urethral traction. In a survey, 95% of nurses said they would be interested in using SafeSecure instead of their current securement device.

Foley InserTag

IUCs should be used for the shortest amount of time possible.2 Medline’s Foley InserTag offers clinicians a visual reminder of when the IUC was inserted and whether it is still clinically needed. It also helps support compliance with CDC/HICPAC recommendation to document catheter insertion date.1

ReadyCleanse Meatal and Perineal Care Cleansing Cloth

One of the biggest risks involved with urinary catheters is the potential for infection.3 Proper hygiene can help to reduce this risk. The ReadyCleanse system provides five soft, smooth cloths premoistened with a pH-balanced, hypoallergenic solution for cleaning the perineum of catheterized patients.
