An evaluation of four urine drainage systems available for use by patients with indwelling urethral catheters and prescribed by general practitioners was performed. Twenty-four patients in the community of one health district tested each system for a number of weeks. Both users and carers responsible for the management of the urine drainage system tested their acceptability and reported on preference, methods of support, ease of use and eomfort. The significance of the results and their implications for nursing are discussed.
