Troubleshooting a leaking catheter

May be caused by incorrect size of catheter (too small), improper balloon size, or bladder spasms

If bladder spasms occur, check that the catheter is draining properly. If no urine is detected in the drainage bag, the catheter may be obstructed by blood or thick sediment, or kinking of the catheter or drainage tube.

Irrigation or the catheter may be indicated

Other caused of urine leakage around the catheter include constipation or impaction of stool, or UTI
