Supervisory nurses in seven nursing homes were taught how to implement a quality control management system that permitted the time-efficient assessment of how well a prompted voiding toileting program continued to be implemented by indigenous nursing aides. Random-hour wet checks taken during the 6-month management period revealed a reduction in wetness from 43% to 21% (p < .0001), which was sustained over the full 6-month period.
