Answer D

In older, often-institutionalised female patients, urinary tract catheterisation and functional status deterioration appear to be the most important risk factors associated with UTI. The other risk factors include non-secretor status of blood group antigens, UTIs before menopause, urinary incontinence, atrophic vaginitis, cystocele and large post-voiding residual urine.
