Utility of Indwelling Catheter in Orthopaedic Patients Receiving Spinal Anesthesia
A study measuring utility of indwelling bladder catheter placement in orthopaedic surgical patients receiving spinal anesthesia. Study will track clinical outcomes, patient satisfaction and cost efficacy. Absence of indwelling bladder catheter may decrease urinary tract infection (UTI) incidence, increase patient satisfaction, and decrease cost burden without increasing postoperative urinary retention (POUR) incidence.
