ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the revamped F315, Urinary Incontinence and Catheters. The new F315, released June 2005, changed what nursing staff were always expected to do. Nursing staff have always been required to do a Resident Assessment Protocol on episodes of incontinence, followed by an individualized plan of care. But since January 2006, surveyors are taking a closer look at urinary incontinence, and they have the power to impose financial consequences for noncompliance in detail. Low-risk residents benefit most from incontinence assessment and treatment. The new F-tag notes that these are the residents who should be evaluated and given an individualized care plan.
