Clinic Data

Recently I reviewed some basic clinic data. I wanted to know how many children referred for bedwetting "graduate" each year. 

To "graduate," a child needs to achieve the four basic goals.
1. confidently dry and not wearing a pull-up
2. able to wake up to pee
3. improved bladder capacity and close to or exceeding the average for age.
4. well hydrated and able to drink as much as desired in the evening and still dry at night. 

I also determined the average number of visits and the average number of months from the first visit until graduation. 

The table below shows the data for the four years from 2011 to 2014. 

The clinic is open about 40 weeks a year, so we graduate about two children each week. The children take an average of 5 to 7 office visits to graduate and the journey to dryness takes an average of 8 to 14 months.
