MAZZO, Alessandra et al. Urinary catheterization delay: clinical practice. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2015, vol.14, n.38, pp.50-59. ISSN 1695-6141.

Objective: Verify how the urinary catheterization delay procedure has taken place in clinical nursing practice. Method: Observational, exploratory and descriptive study, undertaken at hospitals in an interior city in the State of São Paulo, Brazil. The ethical premises were complied with (Opinion 233/2008 University of São Paulo at Ribeirão Preto College of Nursing Research Ethics Committee). The data were collected through an interview, using a semi structured script. Nine out of 13 institutions in the city participated in the study. Results: At the participating institutions, the procedure is performed ritualistically in terms of method and materials. Conclusion: To practice urinary catheterization delay, greater professional commitment and further investments in research are needed to clarify aspects that cannot be proven yet.
