Management of urinary incontinence in Veterans Administration nursing homes.

Abstract

Nursing Home Care Units in Veterans Administration Medical Centers across the country were surveyed to determine methods of management of urinary incontinence (UI) in the nursing home (NH) setting. Information was obtained from 90 of the VA NHs on demographic aspects of the NH population, prevalence and severity of urinary and fecal incontinence, common problems encountered, and specific strategies and techniques. Written guidelines for bladder training and catheter care from many of the NHs were analyzed. The results of the survey reinforce the need for research designed to improve the care of the incontinent NH patient.
