Limit coffee or other caffeine drinks at work
It’s common to sip coffee or water all day. Limit caffeine beverages, as they will make you go more often. You should still aim to drink 1.5 liters of fluids per day (unless limited by a medical condition or instructed otherwise by your healthcare provider), but keep track of how much you drink at work so you can time your catheterizations accordingly.
Bring an extra change of clothes
With good routines you will minimize the risk of having accidents both at work and anywhere else. Should it happen anyway, wearing dark clothes will make it less visible for others. It is also a good idea to keep spare clothes at work or in your car.
Keep a glass of water near you…if you have a urine leak, just act a little clumsy and spill some of the water on your lap… no one will know the difference!
These are general guidelines meant to help you with typical questions. You should follow the specific instructions provided by your healthcare provider and the intermittent catheterization solution you are using.
