I think having to come up with another urine sample is a lesser problem compared to indirectly peeing all over himself.

Somehow? Admit it, you wanted a golden shower with a bunch of nurses around. You could always drink as much water as possible without vomiting and wait a bit again too, as annoying as that is.

Ok, to clear up a common misconception, a catheter is not a needle, it's a length of flexible tubing used to drain urine from the bladder. For rude or ignorant patients, we like to use the garden hose sized variety. And, oops, forgot to lube it.

seems a bit extreme for a urine test. cant the paitents take a cup home and hand one in later or return to the clinic another day rather than getting a catheter in.

If they took it home I think there would be the chance that people would submit urine that was not their own. They probably could just come back though

#43-Yeah, that's not going to happen for a routine physical. 2-3 glasses of water and a 20 minute wait should do it. Moral of the story: don't let yourself get dehydrated before you have labs done; even if you're supposed to fast, you can drink water. Makes things a lot easier.

when i went for a routine physical i was able to take the sample bottle home there was even once that they sent it out to me so i could bring it in with me when i attended the docs next. must be different rules over here. i think the threat of a cathater would have me filling the sample bottle rather quickly tho.

If it's not a drug test they will just send you home with the cup. Getting someone else's urine wouldn't help you if you're being tested for an infection.

51-I've actually had it happen, especially with surgical patients. Mention "catheter" and it scares the piss outta them. Or, maybe it's the evil laugh, who knows?
