Enuresis is a problem that affects children and families both
physically and psychosocially. Parents can be frustrated because
the cause might be unknown, and interventions that work for one
child may not necessarily help another. Children may feel isolated
and embarrassed and avoid age-appropriate activities.
Initial Discussion Post:
Jorge is a nine-year-old boy who never established night time bladder control and wets the bed every night. He does not have toileting accidents during the day. Jorge lives at home with a single working mother, who privately tells the RN that she is frustrated with the additional laundry, and having to get up extra early so her son can shower in the morning rather than at night. She asks the RN in the pediatrician’s office for advice to manage the problem at home.
• Identify two (2) pieces of assessment data the RN should collect.
• How will this data be used in planning nursing care?
• Describe one (1) physiological, and one (1) psychosocial intervention that could help either Jorge or his mother deal with this problem.
