Urinary incontinence in neurological disease

21st September 2012 by Louise Hudman

This guideline outlines the urological problems commonly associated with neurological disease. Most of this is familiar stuff. I will highlight things that stick-out or are new.

Remember that urological problems can be associated with bowel problems and sexual problems too and that these can cause social problems (such as carer stress) as well as physical problems such as recurrent UTI and renal impairment.

UTI – if assessing for UTI in someone with a catheter – do not take a bag sample to test as they will frequently show colonisation without infection – get a sample direct from the catheter.

"I have been a member of the NASGP for the past nine years and have found the advice and support offered invaluable. NASGP passionately champions for safe and fair working conditions for locums, which is crucial in an age of increasing medical litigation.

LocumDeck is a must for every locum who just wants to get on with the job that they were trained to do."
