    Reminds me of the time I asked a student if she would like to do a catheterization. “Oh, no, thank you, I have already done one.” I suspect she faced a stiff learning curve when she looked for landmarks on a few women that had had surgery or six children.

    I was smart about volunteering for catheterizations. Although I was a young female student, I always volunteered for MALE catheterizations, because there was only ONE place that catheter could go!

    we all have stories about catheterizations…..from when I was a student watching another student attempt to catheterize a young woman with hyperemesis gravidarum….with the whole class and instructor watching. She asked the young instructor a question only to be told ‘ I’ve never actually done one myself’ to my last catheterization on an elderly woman from Sudan. The woman’s daughter was interpreting and when I went to catheterize the patient, she said in her language (and translated by her daughter) ‘are you going to play with me now?’
