Lubricath Foley Tray Benefits

  • Allows atraumatic insertion for enhanced patient comfort
  • Tamper-Evident Seal provides a clear indication of system opening, a key area of bacterial entrance to the urinary tract
  • EZ-LOK Sampling Port eliminates the risk of needlestick injuries and allows for needle-free aspiration

More About Lubricath Foley Tray

Urine Drainage Bag Positioning:

  • Never allow tubing to loop or kink
  • Position the drainage bag at the foot of the bed
  • Hold spine and lift meter to facilitate emptying
Points to Remember:

  • Always keep the drainage bag lower than the catheter and the patients bladder
  • When the patient is being transported on a gurney
  • When the patient ambulates
  • When the patient is using a wheelchair
    Otherwise it can slow emptying of the bladder, causing patient discomfort and potentially increasing the risk of contamination system
EZ-Lok Guidelines for Drainage:

  • Occlude drainage tubing a minimum of 3" below the sampling port by kinking the tubing until urine is visible under the access site
  • Swab surface of Bard EZ-Lok Sampling Port with antiseptic wipe 
  • Using aseptic technique, position the syringe in the center of the sampling port. The syringe should be held perpendicular to the surface of the sampling port (at approximately 80o-100o angle), press the syringe firmly and twist gently to access the sampling port
  • Slowly aspirate urine sample into syringe and remove from sample port
  • Unkink tubing and transfer urine specimen into specimen cup, discard syringe according to hospital protocol
  • Follow established hospital protocol for specimen labeling and transport to lab
Inflation/Deflation Guidelines:

  • Proper Catheter Inflation:
    Ensure that the Bard Foley catheter balloon is positioned well within the patients bladder.
    - Slowly, with a gentle, constant force, inflate the Bard Foley catheter balloon with the volume prescribed on the package. Note that a 5cc balloon must be inflated with between 9cc and 10cc of sterile water.
    - Improperly inflated Bard Foley catheter balloons may cause drainage and deflation difficulties.
  • Catheter Deflation:
    Select a luer slip syringe
    - Slide the plunger of the syringe up and down the barrel of the syringe several times to "loosen it up"
    - Compress the plunger all the way and then pull back the plunger slightly so that it does not adhere to the front of the syringe barrel
    - Gently insert syringe in the catheter valve
    - Do not use more force than is required to make the syringe "stick" in the valve
    - Allow the pressure within the balloon to force the plunger back and fill the syringe with water
    - If the user notice slow or no deflation, re-seat the syringe gently, once again, allow the balloon to deflate slowly on its own
    - If the balloon does not deflate, reposition the patient
    - Ensure that the catheter is not in traction - the proximal end of the catheter is not compressed within the bladder neck
    - Ensure that urine flows freely
    - Attempt to deflate the balloon by using the pressure in the balloon to force water into the syringe
    - If the balloon still fails to deflate, apply very gentle, slow aspiration, aspiration that is too rapid or too forceful, may cause the inflation lumen within the Foley catheter to collapse
    - If permitted by hospital protocol, the valve arm may be severed
    - If this fails, contact an adequately trained professional for assistance, as directed by hospital protocol
