Foley Catheter Greeting Card

When we opened up our hospital’s new Foley insertion kits, we found that they contained the card below.

What’s next? Dinner mints with Hemoccult cards?

I don’t even want to know what colonoscopy patients have in store.

  1. I asked my pharmacist friend yesterday where his ” Happy TURP” greeting cards were……

  2. Wait until you start inserting them in dancers. Ever heard of that famous Parisian nightclub – the ‘Foleys Bergere’?

    :-)

  3. During my last visit to a hospital, a framed award on the wall of the waiting room, right behind the coffee machine, proudly proclaimed the unit’s excellence in “Foley Catheter Removal, 97.6% favorable to the mean.”

    I don’t think administrators see pp tubes the same way you and I do.

    (Below it was an award for “Appropriate Hair Removal”).

  4. I find it heartwarming that an otherwise distant bureaucracy would take the time to express their personal interest in my well being.

    Does it have a $5 coupon on the back for the gift shop?

    Or at least, some helpful line drawings to explain the “Mechanics and Risks of Catheterization — What to look for and ask about”?

  5. Is it just me or does medicine just get weirder and weirder?
