Continuous bladder irrigation (CBI) is an established procedure designed to prevent the formation and retention of blood clots following transurethral prostatectomy (TURP). The purpose of this study was to evaluate a tool designed to determine what steps the nurse should follow to assess whether a catheter is blocked and the actions to be taken to restore catheter patency for CBI.
