In brief: Urinary

Urinary catheters can introduce infection into the body.
One option may be a condom catheter, where the device is placed on the penis, much like a condom and the urine is drained into a bag. Also, consider adult pampers in the interim to help with the incontinence. It is never recommended to place an invasive drainage device unless there is a major health risk or safety issue since the complications associated with infection carry a higher risk.
