Abstract

Backround Use of indwelling urinary catheter (IUC) in older adults has negative consequences, including delirium. Aim This analysis, from the “Delirium Day 2015”, a nationwide multicenter prevalence study, aim to evaluate the associa- tion of IUC with delirium in hospitalized and Nursing Homes (NHs) patients. Methods Patients underwent a comprehensive geriatric assessment, including the presence of IUC; inclusion criteria were age > 65 years, being Italian speaker and providing informed consent; exclusion criteria were coma, aphasia, end-of-life status. Delirium was assessed using the 4AT test (score ≥ 4: possible delirium; scores 1–3: possible cognitive impairment). Results Among 1867 hospitalized patients (mean age 82.0 ± 7.5 years, 58% female), 539 (28.9%) had IUC, 429 (22.9%) delirium and 675 (36.1%) cognitive impairment. IUC was significantly associated with cognitive impairment (OR 1.60, 95% CI 1.19–2.16) and delirium (2.45, 95% CI 1.73–3.47), this latter being significant also in the subset of patients without dementia (OR 2.28, 95% CI 1.52–3.43). Inattention and impaired alertness were also independently associated with IUC. Among 1454 NHs residents (mean age 84.4 ± 7.4 years, 70.% female), 63 (4.3%) had IUC, 535 (36.8%) a 4AT score ≥ 4, and 653 (44.9%) a 4AT score 1–3. The multivariate logistic regression
