Top questions about Urine Bag Drainage

Service FAQ

How often should a urinary drainage bag be changed?

The frequency of drainage depends on the size of the bag. The urine bag should never be full. As a rule of thumb, empty the drainage bag when it is half to two-thirds full—this usually means at least every 4 to 8 hours. A leg bag is generally smaller so you may need to empty it more often (approximately every 3 to 4 hours).

Where should the drainage bag be kept?

Always keep the urine bag below your waist level. This prevents urine from flowing back into your bladder, potentially causing an infection.

Wonderful app wonderful service

Have been using this for a year to help my grandfather who frequently gets aspiration pneumonia and has difficulty leaving the house. The app is so easy to use, and the cherry on top is the wonderful service behind the app. Had some difficulty finding a doctor recently and Hakim called me back personally twice to ensure a doctor was found. Thank you so much, cannot recommend this app more.

Doctor is qualified, friendly

Had a good experience with Homage's teleconsultation. The doctor is qualified, friendly and guided me on examination. She also explained my symptoms to me in detail, which is useful. The report provided has detailed information, and medicine was delivered to me on the same day even though my appointment was in the evening.
