What are the risks of foley catheter placement?

Case Study: Jimmy, ten years old, was admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit after a fall from the second-story townhome were sustained a fractured left femur and mild head injury. Currently, Jimmy is two days post open reduction internal fixation of the left femur. Orders were updated to transfer Jimmy out of Intensive Care Unit (ICU) after being cleared by the neurologist.

  • What are the priority nursing interventions for this patient after being transferred from the ICU?
  • What are the risks of foley catheter placement?
  • Does the patient still require an indwelling foley catheter? Provide a rationale to support your answer.
