70-Year-Old Nurse Savagely Beaten by Patient After Removing His Catheter
Breitbart ^ | Feb 11, 2014 | Robert Wilde

Posted on 02/11/2014 1:20:06 PM PST by Gritty

A 70-year-old nurse, who was described by her co-worker as a “sweet old lady,” was knocked to the floor and beaten repeatedly in the head until she was unconscious. The attacker was the patient for whom she was caring.

On Friday afternoon, Evelyn Lynch was taking out the catheter of 40-year-old Kwincii Jones as she was preparing to discharge him from Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn, NY. Police reported that Jones struck the nurse on the head and kicked her in the face, causing serious injuries. “I actually hear she was a sweet old lady,” a Brookdale employee told CBS 2. “That’s why it’s a little weird to me because I don’t know why it would happen. It’s not like she was mean or anything like that.”

I don’t know why it would happen. Why?

Perhaps she forgot to deflate the balloon before removal!

Here’s some advice. If you are ever getting one of these removed or a drainage tube, ask the nurse if it’s true that there’s a balloon in there. It’s a friendly way to remind them to deflate it.

Wow, all I did when the sweet young nurse jerked my catheter out was say: “I would hit you if I could move”. She, without missing a beat said: “It’s no big thing”. I went back to sleep a bit humbler.

I am quite sure that Catheter removal from males should be done by hospital security only.

Nurse Ima Ratchet graciously demonstrates the proper procedure for quick catheter removal. **Medical Assistant Instructions; Play Neil Diamond, Barbara Streisand (Evergreen Era) or Barry Manilow (B-Side Collections) music saved on an I-Pod. Play this music one hour prior to your procedure, in order to fully anesthetize your patient. Works everytime. Have band-aids and sweet Bubble Gum within easy reach to dispense to the patient immediately after their catheter removal. Administer One Double Bourbon (Neat) by mouth. Patient will sleep joyfully and without pain!

Yes, the voice of experience speaking, going out is not nearly as painful as going in. The patient had already experienced it going in, so the pain should have been much less. As some have pointed out, if the balloon which anchored the catheter in the bladder was not deflated it would have been exquisitely painful, if not severely injurious. But, unless it was deliberate, justifying the attack on the nurse, no.

It was always painful to me, albeit less so if lubricated. Newer model catheters are said to be much improved.

Ohhh, there was a musician by the name of Quincy Jones. All I could think of was the tv show. I couldn’t figure it out. Now it makes more sense.

Heh, heh, Kwincy, that’s much like Oprah’s parents trying to spell, Orpha.

“I wouldn’t go quite that far, but female nurses are extremely rough when handling male patients’ junk.”

Yeah, definitely doesn’t justify (what could?) a vicious attack like this on a 70 year old woman. I don’t know if female nurses are unaware, or just don’t care, about how sensitive a man’s urethra is. I’ve never been catheterized, but it certainly seems like it would be pretty unpleasant. My Mom had it done a couple times last year while being treated for bladder cancer, and she said it was quite uncomfortable. I don’t know if it’s worse for men. It may also be the case that there really isn’t a gentle, painless way to insert or remove a catheter, and best is to get it over with as quickly as possible.

for many men, neither inserting or removing a catheter is a “sweet old act”, and one wrong move can turn a merely unhappy action into a horrible one, for the patient

am I excusing the patient? no; most likely the nurse was doing it as well she could, but it was not good enough for the guy, and he assigned bad motives to her and over reacted;

as much as medicine spends so much on the very specialized needs of “women’s health”, which comprise a larger body of gender-specific needs than men have, how come they have not been able to come up with really good alternatives to the penile catheter
