According to this study:

  • A prompted voiding intervention delivered by nursing home staff reduced urinary incontinence in nursing home residents.
  • The patients in the intervention group had significantly fewer wet episodes, a lower incontinence rate, and more total continent toileting episodes per day, and these effects were sustained for up to six months.
