Minimizing urinary incontinence in the nursing home.

Author information

  • 1University of Minnesota School of Medicine, Minneapolis.


In the nursing home, urinary incontinence is a common problem that all too often is treated as an irremediable "problem of aging" by physicians, nurses, and patients. Its etiologies are numerous, as are approaches to treatment in this setting. However, with a thoughtful approach to diagnosis and care, the primary care physician may be able to determine which patients, with which forms of urinary incontinence, will benefit from specific therapies.
