Dangers of UTIs for the Elderly

Dangers of UTIs for the Elderly

A urinary tract infection (UTI) can prove deadly, especially for the sick and elderly. With the number of patients developing UTIs post-discharge, a new study from the Oregon State University suggests that better monitoring is needed after leaving the hospital, making home health care in Texas an essential need for older adults that are just recovering from a previous illness or injury.

Researchers from the university explored more than 3,000 at-risk patients, and revealed that the risk of infection tripled once patients went back to their homes.

UTIs are the most common type of healthcare-related infection, according to the National Healthcare Safety Network. While the infection is usually harmless for the young people, it can also have deadly consequences for the elderly. In some cases, if the infection is left untreated, it can develop into a more risky condition, like sepsis.

Getting your loved ones a home health aide that can help them with the things that they need to do at home can improve their well-being ten-fold. At Advant Home Health Services, Inc., we provide you with the best treatments available for your senior loved one’s well-being.

A constant urge to urinate, and a feeling of pain or burning while urinating are hallmarks of a UTI. Once discovered, the infection can be treated with antibiotics.
If your senior loved ones complains about any of the symptoms we just mentioned, make sure to contact your physician and ask for advice on how to treat it. You may also call our home health care agency in Dallas, Texas here!
