It's important to know whether these are simple UTIs or Pyelonephritis. It is always a possibility that the kidneys might be affected. It's important to recognize the signs of a UTI quickly, get the urine tested with a urinalysis and a urine culture and get started on the appropriate antibiotic. Clean technique with sterile catheters and use of latex gloves may help decrease the risk of infections
