Rehabilitation nurses commonly take care of patients with problems related to bowel and bladder. One common rehabilitation goal is the promotion of continence. However, how continence is promoted depends on the nature of the patient’s medical problem. Three general types of neurogenic bowel and bladder problems will be discussed (reflexive, flaccid and uninhibited) along with interventions to promote continence for each type of neurogenic bladder.
