“Newly published results from a recent national effort to reduce CAUTI show it is possible to decrease urinary catheter use and UTIs by targeting the technical, behavioral, and cultural components of CAUTI prevention."

Viscot Medical has provided a viable solution to the UTI problem. These hand held urinals can be utilized as an alternative to catheters to help decrease rates of catheter- associated urinary tract infections. The male urinal and the “Millie” female urinal are spill resistant and designed with a handle for ease of use even while in bed. The urinals are made of a durable plastic designed to prevent cracks and leaks.

The “Millie” female urinal is designed by women for women and has been the industry standard for hand held female urinals for the past 20 years.
