Quote from Nurselady27
I saw a cath insertion recently and it made me a little sqeaumish. Is that normal?
Feeling squeamish during a urinary catheter insertion is not an abnormal feeling the first time, Nurselady. It's merely a little feeling of empathy for your Patient.
Now, even feeling a little entertained is okay too.
But feeling... oh... a little "elated" during a urinary catheter insertion would be considered abnormal.
But feeling relieved due to urinary retention during a urinary catheterization would be okay, too. Especially by the Patient.
Remember to drain off no more than 1000ml at a time, okay?
