Not necessarily.
But there's not enough information to make any kind of judgement.

Some things that would play into the decision to attempt again to insert a Foley:
1. What are the consequences/how much discomfort will there be if we don't insert a Foley? Sometimes 5 minutes of discomfort is worth it to prevent severe complications.
2. Can the Foley be inserted by someone else who might have a better technique for a difficult insertion?
3. Is the patient competent? If so, what the family thinks has no bearing.

Since you are calling the nurses nasty women who are ignoring your husband, I'm guessing we're not going to get a real unbiased amount of information.

I'm also guessing that the nurses might be a bit more willing to talk to your husband if they weren't being referred to as "nasty women".

I wish your family member well.

Prepare your child for the path, not the path for your child.
Stop telling your God how big the storm is. Instead, tell the storm how big your God is.
It's time to put on your big girl panties and deal with it!
Don't be so open-minded that your brains fall out.
There's no pill that cures stupid.
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
