    This isn't nursing related, but it does answer that epic nursing questions "How do you wipe yourself at home?"

    What I hate about that commercial is that it's deceptive. It implies that a medical supply company has some sort of control over what supplies will be paid for by Medicaid or an insurance company. Once Medicaid/Medi-Cal/her insurance co approved it her catheters could be supplied by quite a few different companies in my state, anyway.

    For pure annoyance value, I vote for the adult pertussis vaccine one with the coughing child and "you may think the safest place for your baby is in your arms" -- don't know why that woman just irritates me, plus they play it every 12 minutes on some channels.
    Good point.

    I've never seen the coughing commercial.

    I routinely see basically the same commercial for a variety of companies.

    They're real ... there's a boatload of money to be made in these "middle-man" businesses. There are firms that specialize in all sorts of supplies: diabetic testing, respiratory, mobility. And they all advertise that they'll do the Medicare paperwork for you. I suspect the profit lies in the difference between the cost of bulk-buying huge quantities of supplies vs what they can charge Medicare.

    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!"
