Other: Has the resident had a Post Void Residual (PVR)? If yes, what were the results?
Has the resident had a bladder scan post void? If yes, what were the results?
Any other pertinent lab work done? If yes, describe What were the results? Based on this comprehensive
assessment, the resident has
the following type of
Check one. Urge – can feel the need to void but is unable to inhibit voiding long enough to reach and sit on the
commode. The most common cause of urinary incontinence in elderly persons.
Stress – leakage of urine when coughing, sneezing, exercising, walking stairs or lifting or other body
movements that put pressure on the bladder. Second most common type of incontinence in older
Mixed (Urge & Stress) – combination; usually with abrupt urgency; (+) nocturia.
Overflow – difficulty starting urine stream; leakage of small amounts of urine after urination; incomplete
voiding; feeling of fullness after voiding.
Functional – urinary tract function is sufficient, but cannot remain continent because of other factors
(e.g. altered mentation, altered mobility).
Transient – episodic urinary incontinence; usually caused by infections; maybe R/T pharmaceuticals;
usually reversible. Based on the above
assessment, the following
bladder incontinence program
will be implemented:
Check one. Bladder Rehabilitation / Retraining* – requires resident's cooperation and motivation and ability to
resist or inhibit the sensation to urinate.
Pelvic Floor Muscle Rehabilitation – requires resident to be able and willing to participate.
Prompted Voiding** – cognitively impaired and needs to be able to say their name or reliably point to
one of two objects. Resident is checked on a regular basis and prompted, assisted to the bathroom.
Habit / Scheduled Training** – cognitively impaired and is provided a planned or scheduled toileting
based on the resident's voiding habits.
Routine Toileting – cognitively impaired and cannot identify a voiding pattern. Assisted to toilet or
provided incontinent care at least every 2 hours.
Behavioral Programs – is cognitively aware and positive reinforcement for appropriate elimination is a
