Does anyone have experience with long term foley catheter use? My 95 yo mother is on hospice, but is no where near actively dying. She had a foley inserted while at the hospice inpatient facility for severe pain after a fall. She's been home for a month now and the visiting hospice RN says it doesn't need to be changed. I've read that they don't need changed on a "regular basis," but shouldn't they be changed at some point? Further info - no UTI. I'm not sure how to tell if the catheter is becoming clogged, but it's not completely clogged. The bag and tubing have been changed once. The tubing is somewhat hazy and the bag is discoloring again.
