Answer

Answer

The prognosis of patients with incontinence from neurogenic bladder is excellent with modern health care. With improvement in information technology, well-trained medical staff, and advances in medical knowledge, patients who are incontinent should not experience the morbidity and mortality of the past. Although the patient's ultimate well-being depends on the underlying condition that has precipitated urinary incontinence, urinary incontinence itself is easily treated and prevented by properly trained health care personnel.
