We aimed to investigate the association between the presence of cutaneous urease-producing bacteria and the development of incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD) using an original urea agar medium as a step toward developing advanced preventive measures. In previous clinical assessments, we developed an original urea agar medium to detect urease-producing bacteria via the medium's colour changes. In a cross-sectional study, specimens were collected via the swabbing technique at genital skin sites in 52 stroke patients hospitalised in a university hospital. The primary objective was to compare the presence of urease-producing bacteria between the IAD and no-IAD groups. Determining the bacterial count was the secondary objective. The prevalence of IAD was 48%. A significantly higher detection rate of urease-producing bacteria was observed in the IAD group than in the no-IAD group (P =.002) despite the total number of bacteria being equivalent between them. In conclusion, we discovered that there was a significant association between the presence of urease-producing bacteria and IAD development in hospitalised stroke patients.
