Urinary Tract Infection --Specific Wording


scscrewed

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.

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
