Hand Washing

09 January 2013

Why is using a correct hand washing technique important?

It is essential that you wash your hands thoroughly prior to handling your catheter, urine collection bag or catheter valve (See figure 13). Using un-perfumed soap from a dispenser and following the Hand washing Guide will ensure that you adopt the correct technique to prevent the spread of infection.
