do not use T84.89 that is for ORTHOPEDIC device

I use

N99.71 accidental puncture during a GU procedure (if there is bleeding due to the cath trauma)
T83.021A Displacement indwelling Urethral Cath (because they had it in the wrong place)
S37.39XA Injury Urethra (they injured the Urethra due to the displace catheter)
then add whatever they state R31.0 Gross Hematuria or N36.8 Urethral Bleed
