"My job as a nurse inspired me to develop my idea. Handling a catheter can be tricky. There is risk for cross contamination, which increases the risk for infection and a prolonged hospital stay for the patient. My invention offers a more sanitary way to handle a catheter," said the inventor.

The BIBI LINE AND CATHETER FEEDER has a soft tip that holds the sterile catheter firmly and does not leave an indentation on the tip of the catheter. It zeroes all acquired bloodstream infections and urinary tract infections drastically. It prevents the risk of contaminating the body with waste products. It also offers a way to handle a catheter without cross contamination. This will, in turn, decrease the risk of infection. The tool is lightweight and easy to use, as well as sterile and disposable in design.

The original design was submitted to the Hollywood office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
