Supporting catheter patients through hospital discharge

Catheter support after hospital discharge

Optimum Medical understands the importance of joined-up care between acute and community services and the impact this can have on the patient journey.

Linking up the products patients are sent home with on hospital discharge with the products they’re continuing to use at home helps to ease the transition by providing patients with products they’re already familiar with.

We provide a range of solutions to help clinicians support their patients through the hospital discharge process. Read on to find out more!

Ugo Home – going home with a catheter

Ugo Home provides a 7-day supply of catheter drainage and fixation devices. Patients being discharged with a urinary catheter in situ can leave hospital feeling confident they have all the products they need for the following week. These devices are contained within a handy, resealable carrier. This also includes user guides for each of the products inside, to help provide extra support and guidance in those first few days back at home and reduce the need for community nurse callouts.

Ugo 4 Weeks – as featured in BJCN (September 2019)

Many people living in the community with a catheter can transition from Ugo Home to Ugo 4 Weeks. Ugo 4 Weeks provides a 4-week supply of catheter drainage and fixation devices. These are all contained within a compact storage box – ideal for discreet storage in the home.

Here are some of the benefits of Ugo 4 Weeks:

Box of catheter drainage & fixation supplies – It’s widely available on prescription
