If drugs are involved, or suspected, and the patient must urinate prior to the arrival of the examiner, a urine sample must be collected and maintained as evidence.

Patients should be instructed not to wash, change clothes, urinate, defecate, smoke, drink or eat until after the initial forensic exam.
