Question:

Out of the four following actions, which one should you use when caring for a patient with a condom catheter?

A You will remove the catheter a minimum of once per day and report any problems
Explaination

The condom catheter must be removed at least once a day in order to be able to examine the patient’s skin underneath it.  Never pull the catheter onto the penis, always roll it on.  Too much lubrication can lead to the catheter becoming dislodged and a drainage bag should never be attached to any movable part of the patient’s wheelchair or bed as well.
