Likely to resolve : I presume he didn't have incontinence before this acute illness. If so it is likely to resolve spontaneously. They probably have used indwelling Foley catheter when he was in icu; which can cause incontinence for few days after removing catheter. Other possibilities are urinary retention, infection, prostate enlargement. Call his doctor if doesn't resolve spontaneously.

Urinary Incontinence: Since he is being managed with a condom catheter, this is likely to protect him from leaking on himself, causing skin breakdown. If he is immobile, he may require this longterm. The most important thing is to make sure that he is not in retention (not able to empty except with extreme filling). In that case a catheter that goes through the penis into the bladder is necessary. Seek a urologist.
