  1. Hi all, I am a nurse who recently got hired at an outpatient setting, so everything is a little different and the patients come and go for quick appointments. My question is, what is the proper procedure for a Foley catheter change? My issue with this in the outpatient setting is directly changing a catheter without urine return. It's uncomfortable for me to a) inflate the balloon and b) send someone home without urine output in the bag - but how else to do it when their bladder was already being drained prior? Our facility doesn't have a proper protocol on this and the other nurses are vague and haven't offered me concrete advice. Any thoughts would be appreciated!
