Abstract

Chronic urologic conditions, including benign prostatic hyperplasia, recurrent urinary tract infections, and urinary incontinence, are common in older adults. This article highlights the urologic and transitional care needs of an elderly, cognitively impaired male during and after an acute hospitalization. Collaboration between the patient, his family, the advanced practice nurse, primary care providers, and outpatient urology office are described. The importance of mutual goal setting and a focused plan for transitional care are discussed.
