    I'll admit that maybe I call them out of pure ignorance of what to do, but I do call (and get slightly aggravated) when a patient comes in with "my urology widget isn't working". If it's simply blood in the foley, or something that can be fixed with simple irrigation... then great... but above that, I have zero idea.

    This brother posted almost the same question in the uro subforum. There, it was inpatient or ED.

    As I said there, "From the ED, it's urinary retention (not a consult, for o/p f/u), obstructive stones (again, usually for o/p f/u), and hematuria 2/instrumentation and procedures from earlier in the day."
