Hospital of Horrors: Leaking Foley Bag

Hospital of Horrors: Leaking Foley Bag

"Hospital of Horrors" Photo 1

The collection bag for the patient's Foley catheter is unclamped, leaking fluid, and touching the floor. This presents a high risk for catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs). The photo also shows that a blood pressure cuff has been left on the patient's arm, which can cause skin tearing and breakdown.
