When I was in the hospital, I was deathly afraid of getting the foley yanked out during transfers. I'd wrap the tube around my own hand anytime anyone was moving me or the foley around. Several times I had to hang on tight as the tube was yanked hard... made me feel like coughing on the nurse, but I restrained myself.
