Bedwetting

Bedwetting

The quality standard is made up of 5 statements that describe high-quality care for children and young people with bedwetting. These statements set out the quality of care they should receive.

1. Children and young people who are bedwetting have an assessment in which they (and their parents or carers if appropriate) are asked questions to help work out what is happening, what might be causing it, and to find out more about any other relevant problems they might have.

2. Children and young people who are bedwetting who are given advice about changing their daily routine to help with bedwetting (or whose parents or carers are given advice) have an agreed date to review how they are getting on and if any other treatment is needed.

3. Children and young people with bedwetting that hasn't improved after changing their daily routine (and their parents or carers if appropriate) discuss possible treatment (such as a bedwetting alarm or medication) with their healthcare professional.

4. Children and young people who are bedwetting have an agreed plan for their treatment (such as using a bedwetting alarm or taking medication) and are able to get the treatment in their plan.

5. Children and young people with bedwetting that hasn't improved after trying initial treatments (such as a bedwetting alarm and/or medication) are referred to a specialist who can provide extra support.
