1. Disinfecting wipes.
Public restrooms are not always the cleanest places. In case you have to transfer, disinfecting wipes are useful for wiping down toilet seats, grab bars and anything else grimy.
2. Hand sanitizer.
Great if the soap dispenser is empty, or the faucet isn’t working.
3. Catheter with a bag attached, or urinal for those that don’t normally use a closed system catheter.
There will be times that you won’t be able to find an accessible restroom. A collection bag with a universal connector that attaches to your catheter or a closed system catheter will be helpful.
4. Baby wipes, and a change of underwear and pants.
No matter how well we follow our bladder and bowel programs, accidents happen.
Gloves can be crucial If you find yourself in a situation where you need to cath, but can’t wash your hands, or need to take care of a bowel accident.
