T1: Luckily, I'm outpatient. But we see folks sent home w/indwelling and no careintructions til they see urologist in 2 weeks! #RNChat

nursekris99:
T1 my unit does well we don't have many UTI's. Unless like yesterday pts pull them out
dorameulman:
 
with the balloon still inflated :-O #RNChat
8/19/2010 21:15 
T1 At my facility our goal is to remove Foley caths on all patients. They need a VERYgood reason to stay beyond 2 days. #RNchat
8/19/2010 21:15 
rnchat:
@dorameulman HAHA! I had one on Tuesday do the same thing! #RNChat
8/19/2010 21:16 
nursekris99:
T1 I also see patients undergo some inpatient surgery without ever having a Foleyinserted. Only if they cant void do we put 1 in. #RNchat

rnchat:
T1 @nursekris99 Thats sad to see. No home catheter-care instructions are given at all?Yikes. #RNchat

@RNchat T1 Minimal instruction combined with rural education makes for multiple F/Cproblems in my population. #RNChat

T1@dorameulman You are in MICU. I bet many pts require it for unstablehemodynamics--thats a good reason to keep it #RNchat

T1-am still seeing lots of foley infections in records I review, while pts w/o foleys aren'thaving urine output monitored-bad news #RNChat

jrobinsonRN:
T1 @jrobinsonRN The push for SCIP postop protocol for UTI prevention is fairly new, like2 yrs old? Maybe your charts are older? #RNchat

T1: We use foley's as a last resort if it will aid in patient comfort. We teach families foleyhygiene to help reduce UTI's #RNChat
