The population of children presenting to the Emergency Department (ED) for treatment increases day by day, creating a further burden on the limited nursing staff and where many children and their parents are forced to wait many hours until their medical investigation ends. Part of the many hours waited are for various tests the patient has to undergo, where the urine test is one of the main ones.
Urinary tract infections in children are a common cause of death due to acute and chronic complications alike. Our study aims to test a urine collection method to see whether it reduces parents' and/or nursing staff's involvement and thereby reducing the urine sample's percentage of contamination.
