Incontinence...to be or not to be

  1. I have a question regarding the OASIS that we (clinicians) cannot seem to agree on at our agency... re:urinary incontinence. Is the patient marked as incontinent if he EVER has any kind of incontinence, or only if he has had any kind of incontinence within the past 24 hours of the assessment?

    Since SOC info looking at past 14 days at beginning of OASIS, i use that as interval to determine patient changes: were they incontinent anytime past 2 weeks...includes damp panties from sneezing....
