Urinary incontinence in nursing homes for older people.

Author information

  • 1King's Mill Hospital, Sutton in Ashfield, Nottingham NG17 4JL, UK.


At least 50% of nursing home residents in Britain and North America suffer from urinary incontinence. It is associated with resident and staff morbidity. The assessment and management of such residents will depend on the capacity of the care staff and the capability of the resident. The minimum data set and resident assessment protocol may have a role in the assessment of incontinent residents. Behavioural strategies are more likely to be beneficial than drug treatment.
