I usually try to mind my own business because the last thing I want to be known for is being that NP that thinks she knows everything, but I was blown away yesterday when I saw an OR nurse use chloraprep for foley insertion on a female. Now, I don't know everything, but having been a scrub tech, then OR nurse, and now Surgical NP, I've never seen it done before. When I spoke up about it, I was told they use it all the time. The only instance I've seen alcohol used directly on genitalia/mucous membranes is on penile prosthesis insertions, only because of the infection risk. Do any of you use chloraprep or duraprep or any other alcohol based products for foley insertion?
