leaking around foley

  1. With the new 3.0, should we still be coding leaking around a catheter as an incontinence episode? I don't see that stated anywhere in the RAI manual.

    I would code this a "9" for indwelling catheter, leaking or not.

    It's been quite a while since I was an MDS coordinator, but as I recall, any bowel or bladder emission that did not go where it was supposed to, e.g., in a catheter/ostomy bag or toilet, was coded as incontinence.
