Abstract

An observational study was performed on 2 wards in a tertiary hospital to determine staff awareness, knowledge, and documentation of catheter use and the effects these have on duration of catheterization. Overall, there was poor knowledge of the indications and date of catheterization. Doctor awareness decreases duration of catheterization.
