    Disgusting advice. My Fathers Urethra has been wrecked because the district nurse used this rubbish method. Every decent website says advance the catheter further than the "urine seen" stage at least 5cm and a lot of nurses say insert up to bifurcation of the catheter, inflate the balloon then gently withdraw. To not advance after urine passes ensures the balloon is inflated in the urethra.

    very helpful information, I would like to forward it to myself so I can print it at another computer (at work). I do not have a functional one at home. I have been an LPN for ten years, but needed a refresher on catheterization techniques. I work in Psychiatric nursing so rarely have occasion to do these things. Great site, I'll check it again for information when I have more time and questions. Thanks!

    "Image verification" failure, I have re-entered the letters several times carefully and it still won't accept it, so my request was futile.
