View Full Version : Urine bags
12-20-2010, 11:12 AM
If anyone has any urine bedside bags and some leg bags they are not using, please send a private message as to how much you want for them. David is on Medicare now and they only allow 2 per month and I really like changing it out more than that, even after cleaning them they never seem like they are very clean. Thanks

2 leg bags a month in my opinion is not a problem....im sure most, as do i use same bag for a couple months with no problems .....my bag stays clean, just fill with water every few days, drain, repeat...then when empty, blow it up(from hose end of course) and let it stay like that overnight..it will dry out that way.(just be sure to take out air and flatten when u put it back on)...u can also spray some lysol into it when u rinse it......a new bag every week is overkill.........same goes for nightbag......they are closed systems....but if he gets uti's,then they might be harder to clean if left dirty/moist
