Cause #2: Catheterization

Catheterization can sometimes cause a UTI. It is one of the common causes of a UTI in the hospital. An indwelling catheter refers to a tube that helps to drain urine from the bladder into the bag after it is inserted into the urethra.

A catheter may be necessary in situations where patients are unable to control their bladder function, surgery, or if there is a need to monitor urine production. In a catheter-related UTI, symptoms include urine that is cloudy, bloody, has a strong odor, suprapubic discomfort, fever, chills, vomiting, and more.
