Urologists who have included nursing home consultations in their practices note the presence of multiple urologic problems in these patients: incontinence and dysfunctional voiding, use and management of indwelling catheters, asymptomatic bacteriuria, symptomatic UTI, hematuria, sexuality; management of prostate, bladder and renal cancer, and stone disease. Each of these problems engenders discussion in this chapter, which concludes with the recommendation that urologists incorporate elderly long-term care patients in their schedules.
