Don't pee on my head and try and tell me its raining!

Doctors are funny beasts. We have a A&E SHO who appears to be obsessed with urine. Every patient, regardless of presenting complaint is required to produce a urine dip. It is getting extreme, the next cardiac arrest will undoubtably need one. Don't remember a UTI being a reversable cause of arrest. He becomes exceptionally agitated when water is not produced, as if it is our fault the demented lady in B bay can't give a sample, (not so much she can't pee as the bed will testify however getting it into a recepticle is another matter). The best trick is to use your nose. If they smell; UTI. Unless they come from a certain part of town, then its their natural aroma.
