Hi all. Trying to find a good source to teach nurses how to properly obtain specimen from foley cath.


seeing that it didnt load not much good/////////

How could you show this video on line when the nurse is NOT using the proper asceptic technique for acccessing a port. GROSS. The patient's clothing was touching the access site. No covering was applied. she pushed back approximate 10 ml of blood back. Really!!! You should have a real instructor and or an RN who follows proper INS and ONS standards of practice. The whole thing is a shame,

Anyone know how large the needle is that goes into the jugular? I stopped interferon after 9 months of being sick and want the port out. Just got done paying to put it in. Cutting the small hole is no problem, the size of the needle is my main concern. My blood clots quick and I'm not a bleeder, but I still have a worry bout bleeding out if the needle going into jugular leaves too large a hole. I have had to cut on myself in the past so that is not a problem.
