Are you securing male catheters in the right place?

To avoid necrosis at the urethral penile-scrotal junction caused by prolonged catheter pressure, it is recommended to secure urinary catheters to males’ abdomen. The catheter has to be positioned in a soft curve towards the femur and can be fixed with a securing device, tape, velcro™ or a pocket for the bag […] the same principles of stabilisation apply to suprapubic catheters.
