Nurses are the largest professional group responsible for placing catheters.
Becoming trained in the use of DirectVision® can allow nurses to become a driving force in improving patient care for those in need of a Foley catheter.
DirectVision® can improve patient care efficiency, satisfaction, and outcomes.
Visually-guided catheters are associated with:
Increased first-time success rate for placement
Decreased pain or discomfort during catheter placement
Reduced risk of injury during catheter placement
Decreased frequency of urology consults for difficult catheter placements
Decreased risk of infection
Successfully placing a catheter on the first attempt eliminates the need for urology involvement and escalation procedures, which will save money and time, and reduce stress.
