Question

The rating for 30 percent reads:

30%Recurring UTI w/ symptoms requiring drainage/frequent hospitalization >2x/yr and/or requiring continuous intensive management

What does "continuous intensive management" mean? This seems ambiguous to me.

I am claiming that my recurrent and frequent UTI and Kidney infections require intensive healthcare management. I have a five year gap in my medical files, but the first three years there are twelve UTI's one record with two kidney infections; I have a UTI right now.

I am trying to get the 30percent rating. But I will not stay in the hospital barring a restraints and cops. So, what qualifies as "intensive management?"

I get several a year. I get lectured on appropriate timing --but sometimes you forget until you start dribbling-- and sanitation -- you can wash your hands before but I cannot wash my hands from the toilet so the introduction of bacteria into my bladder is reality. Sometimes, I get to go with an IV.

I have a case where the guy didn't meet any of the requirements for the 30 percent but got it: http://www.va.gov/ve...es1/1004348.txt

Gulfvet to bring you up, if you didn't read previous post, I spent five years in prison, so there isn't an actual five year gap in medical files, but the files are incomplete. I am working on getting the files. I signed ROI and I filed a Writ of Mandamus, so we'll see.

the key is (and/or) you do not have to stay but do go to the VA-ER to get treated and stable if they try and admit you tell them why you do not want to be. A large number of it in your records is what you need, that is just what was missing in the cases you had.
