Self-Straight Catheterization Teaching

CMMC Bladder Control Center Provides Catheterization Instruction

Some patients need to be instructed how to catheterize themselves on a regular schedule. At the Bladder Control Center nurses are available, by appointment, to provide one-on-one self straight-catheterization instruction to patients. The patient is shown, step-by-step, how to perform self straight-catheterization. He or she then performs it to ensure it is done correctly. Written instructions are also provided, to take home. The nurse will often call the patient in 48 hours to see how they are doing and if the patient has any questions.
