There are different methods for documenting the results, as mentioned previously;
- After dipping the urine compare the strip with the scale and remember the results
- Prepare your documentation sheet with as much information as possible, prior to dipping the strip. After dipping it, remove the glove from your dominant hand and document the results.
- You may write the results on a scrap piece of paper to transfer to the patient notes (electronic or paper) in a clean environment.
Please report abnormal results immediately to a senior member of staff, and document clearly.
