1. Pinch off the catheter using the thumb and forefinger. 2. Avoid touching the ends of any connecting tube. Remove the drainage bag tubing from the catheter, twisting the bag connector gently as you do this. 3. Remove the protective cap from the new bag and immediately insert the drainage bag tube into the catheter. Replace the protective cap onto the old bag. 4. Secure the new bag using the chosen method of support. Empty urine from the old drainage bag into the toilet or receptacle.
Always ensure you wash your hands before and after connecting the night bag, and avoid touching the end of the inlet connector. Taking these simple precautions will help to prevent bacterial contamination. 1. It is recommended that your leg bag is empty or has very little urine in it before attaching it to the night bag. Remove the protective cap from the 2-litre bag and store until morning. 2. Attach the connector at the top of the night bag to the outlet tube of the leg bag and check that the connection is secure. You may wish to loosen or remove the leg bag straps or sleeve. 3. Open the tap on the leg bag to allow the urine to drain into the larger bag. 4. Attach the 2-litre bag to a suitable night bag stand.
Wash your hands before removing the night bag. Close the tap on your leg bag and secure it to your leg. Gently twist the night bag connector away from the leg bag and empty the urine into a toilet. If it is a single use night bag, ensure you dispose of it after emptying. If it is a 5-7 day, drainable night bag, then you should put the protective cap back on the end and store ready for the next night.
