The purpose of this national survey was to investigate the Quality of Life and Life Satisfaction among those with spinal cord injury regarding types of urinary management. This study was based on Orem's Self Care Theory which states that individuals have the potential to promote and maintain personal health and well being in meeting physical, psychological, interpersonal, and social needs. A sample of 252 persons, 74.6% males and 25.4% females, with an average age of 44.4 years and an average of 10.94 years post injury participated in this study. The levels of spinal cord injury were C1-4 (36.5%), T1-12 (37.5%), L1-5 (5.6%), and unstated (2.8%). Data was collected with the Quality of Life Index, Satisfaction with Life Scale, and a demographic data form. Findings from analysis using the ANOVA indicated there was no significant difference in Quality of Life or Satisfaction with Life as to the type of urinary management system used (indwelling catheter, suprapublic catheter, intermittent catheterization, external catheter, or reflex void). Data analysis using the Pearson Correlation indicated a significantly positive relationship between Quality of Life and Life Satisfaction (r = 0.667, p = 0.0001). Further data analysis indicated that most spent less than one hour per day with urinary management (73.8%). The number of urinary accidents was: none (25.8%), one/year (19%), one per month (37.3%), one per day (9.1%), over one per day (5.6%). The number of urinary infections over the last year was: 0-2 (64.7%), 3-5 (13.1%), 6-8 (8.4%), and 9 or more (4%). Percentage of subjects reporting no hospitalizations related to urinary tract infections for the year was 91.3%. Finally, the percentage of subjects reporting no skin problems related to urinary problems was 78.6%. Data analysis indicated persons changed or modified their urinary programs to meet personal needs and abilities.
