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 started using LocumDeck as one of our locums used it. It was easy to see her availability and when bookings are made I get confirmation of the booking and can view them on the calendar too. When invoices are sent, I can see it on the site, and digitally sign the pension form (this is one of the best bits!). It would be good if all locums used it, as then it would be so much easier for me to track my bookings and check their availability without emailing or texting them, waiting for a reply and then emailing back to confirm. It’s a great place for their documents to sit also. I can access it from home or my mobile which is useful as when I am not in surgery is when I usually need a locum!"
