In brief: Foley

The girls legs are spread apart, an antiseptic is used over the urethra and surrounding area, the urethra is identified, and a ky-lubricated catheter is inserted into the urethra.
The location is verified when urine comes out the other end. The bulb of the foley is filled with sterile saline.
