This paper describes a quality assurance project, which was undertaken between the Divisions of Women's and Children's Health and Surgery at St George Hospital. The aim of the project was to determine the optimal venue for insertion of a urinary catheter prior to an elective caesarean section. Prior to this project, the urinary catheter had been inserted on the ward before women were transferred to the Operating Theatre (OT). The project sought to answer the question: would women prefer to have their urinary catheter inserted on the ward or in the OT after their epidural anaesthesia had commenced?
