MATURATIONAL ENURESIS Nursing Care Plan

      So what's the meaning of maturational enuresis? Maturational enuresis occurs in children during night. It is when a child experience involuntary voiding while sleeping and it is not pathologic in origin. Do not use this diagnosis when enuresis results from urinary tract infection, constipation, epilepsy and diabetes. Instead, you can use this when enuresis is from small bladder capacity, failure to perceive cues with a maturational issue such as new siblings or school pressures. We provided one sample of nursing care plan for maturational enuresis below.
