Abstract

Continence improves from 44.7% dryness at baseline to 54.7% at the end of treatment, an improvement of 22%, or about one incontinent episode per day. Urinary incontinence is improved in cognitively impaired residents by augmenting the prompted voiding procedure with a bellpad. Bladder behavior changes with behavioral treatment strategies, because the volume voided into an appropriate receptacle increased an average of 26 mL per 2 hours. Reimbursement policies should not exclude treatment of the severely cognitively impaired nor the immobile in nursing homes.
