    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?
