Dear Sir,
I was getting a Urine Sample ready when suddenly without looking properly I picked up a mug which I thought was coffee and took a swig ,to my horrer I realised it was the urine can I just forget it and be far more careful in future or should I take something to kill off any possible germs.
Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Any germ in the urine will be killed by the stomach acid environment.
So the chances of infection from such incident is extremely low.
Hence, you do not need to worry about it.
In future, please be more careful.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
