Bladder Program

204462_1415A bladder program helps you to increase bladder tone and regain bladder control without the use of a catheter. Many patients experience incontinence or accidents due to disease or old age. Bladder programs help to increase your self-esteem and avoid the chance of a urinary tract infection from continued use of a catheter.

Your nurse will instruct you on bladder control techniques, such as:

  • Voiding after meals and fluids
  • Voiding after naps, before bed and before activities
  • Using a toilet instead of bedpans
  • Developing a bladder routine
  • Fully emptying the bladder each time
