A Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) is an infection that affects any part of your urinary system such as your ureters, kidney, urethra, and bladder. UTI’s are commonly known to affect every five out of ten elderly women in America. However, any one can have UTI regardless of their age, sex or ethnicity. With the help of my preceptor Rita and based on my clinical observations I chose to write on Urinary Tract Infections.
The teaching will be personalized to help the elderly female patient understand the meaning of Urinary Tract Infection and its symptoms, causes, complication, tests and diagnosis, preventions/good proper hygiene, treatments and drugs use for UTI.
I have taken care of many elderly patients with UTI’s, and it causes confusion and leads to a loss of balance. Most patients do not seem well-informed on the issue such as treatments, which usually leads to more complications later on. My objective is to enhance the patient’s education which will allow them to apply their knowledge while allowing them to take action in self-care.
