    Heard of this and agree with One2go, we learned about it in nursing school, it's not an issue at all. They are only using it on themselves and it's cleaned every time. Think about those tubes to insert vaginal creams when you have an infection, you use it for a week, but clean it every day. Toothbrushes definitely have more germs on them than a catheter being used on an uninfected person!
    vaginal creams and reusing those applicators are not the same as tubes entering the urethra for obvious reasons....

    I'm with you, @nursel56 - that whooping cough commercial drives me nuts. The worst (national) nursing commercial I can recall is a horrible Johnson & Johnson nursing campaign commercial from a couple years ago that had the jingle: "You're a Nurse...You Make a Diiiference." It was incredibly schmaltzy and played on all the usual nursing tropes to the nth degree, so it drove me nuts.
    that J&J commerical on nursing is still playing where I am.... "you make a difference..." It is not a bad message, but the jingle is ridiculous. Just moronic.

    Holly strikes again!

    We've discussed her here before, and this is actually the older commercial. She's in a new one that features a better hairdo.

    And then there's THIS little gem...

    Sadly, the other commercials are REAL.

    Still, this is an old favorite. "Oops I Crapped my Pants holds a lot of dung!"

    Before I became a nurse, I had a client who hated cathing herself. She taught herself how to do the Crede maneuver and was so good at it she was able to stop using catheters.

    They play it on Telemundo 24/7 too. There. Is. No. Escape. dundundun. . .the J and J commercial I never understood the purpose of. Was there a website you could go to for scholarships courtesy of Johnson and Johnson? Did it offer discounts to nurses on their products? I suppose it's nice to be appreciated and all, but. . .show me the green! We know you could spare a coin or two!
