Did something change along the way?... to flush a Foley, you need to maintain sterile aseptic technique... right? Most of the residents I work with in ltc have orders to flush prn obstruction. I personally would rather change the catheter rather than push that yuck back into the bladder but I had an orientie that wanted to flush for decreased output. Now we don't have sterile syringes in house. I told her we could micky mouse the procedure with iv flushes because there sterile but we would need 6 of them and you put youself at risk from flashback fluid because they don't fit. I strongly recommended to wait until I could speak to the higher ups about obtaining sterile irrigation syringes. My peers recommended enteral syringes... Not sterile... And come to find out that's what we have been using for years. Ugh. Policy and procedure manual plainly stated to use sterile syringe. Director of nursing told me she was going to have the policy changed. Am I crazy or is this place insane?
