Material and Method: A Randomized Controlled Trial was used to assess the effectiveness of Betadine versus Normal Saline for catheter care on occurrence of urinary tract infection among patients with indwelling catheter in ICUs of DMCH, Ludhiana. Total 30 patients with indwelling catheter were drawn from the target population by using random sampling technique. Results: The finding of present study revealed that statistically non-significant results were found for urinary tract infection. Conclusion: Betadine 10% and Normal saline 0.9% both can be recommended for catheter care in reducing the occurrence of urinary tract infection in clinical practice.
