This message has been cross posted to the following Discussions: Inpatient Staff Hospital Issues and APHON Open Forum . ——————————————-
Sure this has been touched on before, but I’m examining how our hospital deals with urine after collected for urine dips/tests/measurement while they are cytotoxic. Currently, we placed plastic underpads over the toilet and flush to prevent aerosolization.
However, I’m now examining the potential cost benefit to using quilted underpads that are available at our hospital.
What are other children’s hospitals doing with this practice?
Thanks for your responses!
