Cause of her incontinence is mixed.She recently fell in the night getting up to make a drink and fractured her femur following a cardiac event she also had pulmonary oedema.However she is tough old bird and is recovering well in a rehabilitation unit.She is constantly wet and has difficulty getting to the toilet without help.She is also a very proud lady and does't like to be wet all the time.She has had two UTI's in the last year one after a catheter was removed after transferring from secondary care. I hope this is helpful
Thank you Would it be true to say there is no studies comparing the social problems in the elderly ie indignity of being wet and smelly, safety in getting up to the toilet and falling Pressure on carer and relationships between carer and cared for. Integrity of the skin and pressure areas.Infection arising from being " padded up".and having a indwelling catheter.
