  • antiseptic pads
  • 10 ml syringe
  • 21G or 22G needle
  • pinching tube clamp

 ensure privacy
 i will explain bedridden patient that you have to urinate in a bedpan / urinary man who is restrained i will explain that you have to go to the toilet to urinate

 if you accidentally lose urine on the outside walls of the container wash and dry
 container labeled with patient name, date and time of harvest and will be sent immediately to the laboratory accompanied by the form of the analysis
 delay in sending the sample to the laboratory can alter the final results of the sample
 wash flasks / urinary graduated beaker is removed from the patient’s bedside
 patients who are immobilized and will be going to the toilet or bedpan urinary urine then it will do the same as above

 patient is suggested to wash their hands
 will label the container with patient name, test performed , the type of sample
 if requested urine culture should be noted if the patient is under antibiotic and the antibiotic is given

 bedridden patients harvesting technique is the same, but it will use the bedpan / urine to urine in bed

Sampling of urine from patients with bladder probe :
Clamping  tube is attached to the probe 30 minutes before the urine sample collection
 put gloves ;
