How to remove a foley catheter on a male patient?

To remove a Foley catheter from a male patient, follow these general steps:

  1. Wash your hands thoroughly to maintain cleanliness
  2. Ensure the patient is in a comfortable position, lying down or sitting.
  3. Gently pull the catheter out of the urethra with a steady motion. Do not force it; instead, take controlled breaths to ease the process
  4. If resistance is encountered, move the catheter in a full circle in each direction before attempting to pull it out again

Always follow specific instructions provided by healthcare professionals or the catheter manufacturer. In some cases, additional steps may be necessary, and professional guidance is essential.
