A picture is worth a thousand words. YouTube  has excellent educational videos for almost every nursing/medical procedure you can think of.

Being left handed or right handed should guide you into the use of which hand is your dominant one. GO WITH WHATEVER IS DOMINANT.

Also, position yourself on the correct side of the bed that makes YOU feel most adept.

For female catheters I was taught to hold the catheter between thumb and second finger with my index finger underneath the end of the catheter (about 2-3 cm along from the tip) Then use index finger to slightly angle the tip of the catheter upwards. Makes it less likely to slip into the wrong hole. Works a treat.

And when you get it in the wrong hole, and you will. Leave it there, get a clean catheter, and try again.

You’re really overthinking this. It doesn’t matter. Maintain sterility and get it in the hole. Lol.

Have you asked your coworkers for their feedback? Have you observed your coworkers? Have you watched YouTube videos as advised above?

Yes but I want feedback of colleages from worldwide. And we do not use catheter sets as it was shown in videos on youtube.We need to gather equipment on tray and procedure is done by two persons( executor and assistant).

 

So it is important to say your opinion of picture.
