Purple Urine Bag Syndrome: A Rare Clinical Case.
In this report, a 60 years old woman with a past medical history of significant chronic kidney disease undergoing regular hemodialysis, chronic constipation and hepatitis B was admitted to our neurology clinic because of acute intracerebral hemorrhage. She had confusion and right hemiplegia in her neurological examination and required urinary catheterization due to immobilization. Red coloration was observed in urine on the tenth hospital day. Although this coloration was thought to be hematuria, according to urine examination it was not hematuria. Then urine color turned into purple within two days. The next day, because of fever, full blood count and other blood investigations were performed and urine was sent to the laboratory for culture. Empirical piperacillin-tazobactam and teicoplanin antibiotic treatments were commenced. In the urine culture, 105 cfu/ml Enterococcus faecalis was isolated. According to the antibiotic susceptibility results the therapy was changed and meropenem was added to the treatment. For her constipation, supportive managements such as hydration, nutrition and laxative treatment were applied. After all the treatments, the patient's constipation regressed, the urine had become normal colored and the following urine cultures were not revealed any bacterial growth. As in this case, when the urine discoloration occurs, PUBS should be kept in mind which is especially seen in elderly female patients with chronic constipation, urinary catheterization, uri...

Abstract The World Health Organization (WHO, 2020) has designated 2020 as the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife to mark the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth. This celebration honors her work and impact on the nursing profession-one of engagement and advocacy for public health. Nightingale's Notes on Nursing (1860) illustrated her observations of social determinants for health wellness and illness. She championed efforts for community access to clean water and public sanitization and emphasized the importance of nutrition and hygiene on healing and wellness. Her calls for action still...
