Answer

Practically speaking, patients in whom more serious pathology has been ruled out will be referred for outpatient treatment. [24] If reversible causes of urinary incontinence are evident (eg, UTI, hyperglycemia in diabetic patients) they should be treated in the emergency department. [30, 24]
