h. DO NOT separate connecting tube and catheter. Obtain a urine specimen
without disrupting the closed system. A needle and syringe is used to aspirate urine
from a special port on the collecting tubing.
i. Change the catheter as ordered or IAW local infection control policy. The
order may be to remove the catheter and then to replace it following several hours
interval to relieve pressure on the urethra. Remember:
(1)
Always deflate the balloon of a self-retaining catheter before removal.
(2)  Use aseptic techniques for any procedure involving the urethra and
bladder. Each catheterization is a potential source of injury and infection if not
performed properly.
