Foley catheter

  1. Im a new nursing student, I was wondering if there are any tips on insertation of foley catheters on males and females you would be willing to share. I know practice makes perfect, but any advise I can get would be greatly appreciated. I want to make as comfortable experience as posible for my patients. Thanks so much

    Hi Bradley! I recently had a lot of trouble inserting a foley into an uncircumcized patient and got a lot of good pointers on the thread I started, "Most Dreaded Procedures". (See link below.) I hope it'll help you, too-- Just being sensitive and caring about making the experience as comfortable as possible for your patients says that you'll make a great nurse! All the best to you in school and in your nursing career!
