Urine, the other amber nectar, is something we seem to want to check in nearly every unwell appearing child.  But what do you do if they just don’t want to go?  You’ve filled them up with icy poles or dilute apple juice and you are just waiting for a sample to be produced.  As a doctor (and as a parent) I have been urinated on (by children) more times than I dare to recall (in fact it happened to me just this morning) but how do we make sure we get a sample when we need it? With 4 hour targets to meet it’s worth considering any means of speeding up the process.
