- 0Jan 29, '13 by tussah10I am a nurse in a pediatric practice where the MDs catheterize their own patients (usually children under 2) for UTIs. I used to cath patients when working in the hospital and was wondering if it was normal protocol for pediatricians to cath their own patients. Just curious what other people do....

But if the MD in your office is doing the caths, don't take it personally! Maybe that MD just wants to keep his/her skills sharp! Maybe you can ask to do some of the caths, if you'd like the experience.
