Abstract

In a hospital-based Veterans Administration Nursing Home, patients with indwelling urinary catheters were divided randomly into two groups to evaluate the effect of frequency of catheter change on the development of clinical urinary tract infection. During the six-month study clinical urinary tract infections developed in 6 of 7 men in whom catheters were changed only for infection and/or obstruction and in 3 of 10 men in whom catheters were changed monthly as well as for infection and/or obstruction.
