SPPICES: Urinary Incontinence
Organizational Goal To organize continence services in an integrated fashion that focuses on the identification of patients, assessing their condition and implementing the most appropriate treatment plan. This model of good practice will allow staff to achieve more responsive and effective continence services and assist patients.
SPPICES Questions 1.Do you have problem passing water/getting to the bathroom on time? 2.Did you wear incontinence products at home? 3.If there is a catheter, is it still needed? 4.Was your last bowel movement 3 days ago?
Did you know that... 50% - 70% of persons with UI don’t seek help. UI is a very common problem with treatments that work. Most cases of UI can be markedly improved.
Prevalence 15% - 30% of seniors in the community 15.3% in acute care facilities 50% in nursing homes
Impact of UI Physical Psychosocial Financial
Definition A common, disruptive, and potentially disabling condition in the aging population. An involuntary loss of urine in sufficient amounts or frequency to constitute a social and/or health problem. (Kane, Ouslander, & Abrass, 1994 )
Requirements for Continence Effective lower urinary tract functioning storage & emptying Adequate mobility and dexterity to use the toilet, toilet substitute, and to manage clothing Adequate cognitive function to recognize toileting needs and to find a toilet/substitute Motivation to be continent Absence of environmental and iatrogenic barriers such as inaccessible toilets/substitutes, unavailable family/caregivers and drug side effects
Established/Persistent UI: The Bladder Normal Aging Changes Anatomy Physiology
Causes of Acute/Reversible UI D Delirium I Infection A Atrophic Vaginitis/ Urethritis P Pharmaceuticals P Psychological causes E Excess fluid R Restricted mobility S Stool impaction (Resnick, 1992)
Established UI: Overflow Urine loss (dribbling) associated with an overdistended bladder due to an obstruction in the urethra. Signs and Symptoms: Leakage of small amounts of urine Palpable or percussable bladder, suprapubic tenderness Hesitancy on voiding, interrupted urine flow or post void dribbling Urine loss without urge Sensation of incomplete voiding or bladder fullness Frequency
Established UI: Urge Involuntary loss of urine (usually larger amounts) associated with a sudden, strong desire to void. Signs and Symptoms: Sudden “urgency” to void Nocturia and / or Enuresis Moderate to large amounts of urine loss Loss of urine at the sound of water running or when waiting to access a public toilet
Established UI: Functional Urinary leakage associated with the inability to toilet because of impairments in cognition and/or physical functioning, psychological unwillingness or environmental barriers. Signs and Symptoms: Report of being unable to get to the bathroom on time Total emptying / large amounts of urine leakage No incontinence when access to a bathroom and assistance with toileting available
Established UI: Stress An involuntary loss of urine (usually small amounts) with increases in intraabdominal pressure (ie. Cough, laugh, sneeze, exercise). Signs and Symptoms: Small amounts of urine leakage/loss associated with activity, lifting, coughing, sneezing, and/or laughing Urine leakage during the day while person is active

Case Study Mr. Yeung is a 90 year old man with a history of dementia, CHF, and osteoarthritis. He is on 40mg lasix BID, and Tylenol # 3 prn for his pain. During his hospitalization for exacerbation of his CHF, he has a new onset of urinary incontinence. What type of UI is Mr. Yeung experiencing? What would be your plan of action for him?
