In brief: See urologist

Your mom needs a complete anatomic evaluation including ct of the kidneys looking for stones or obstruction and cystoscopy looking at bladder lining.
Her urologist will also make sure she empties her bladder as stagnant urine is a big risk factor for recurrent uti. Bathtubs should be safe.
