Blood test

Post by gumshoes_15 » Wed Mar 15, 2006 7:35 pm

Why is blood test not taken in school investigation. is it because we don't have enough equipments? That's why we have to do urine test?

I couldn't help noticing that you posted your whole homework here. Try giving your answers and then someone might help you understand where you are wrong and tell you where you are right.

Would you rather be poked by a needle or pee on a stick if given the choice between the two?


A urine dipstick test is a non-invasive procedure....pure and simple.

School investigations generally are checks for drugs and other such things. This can be determined by urine. Checking blood, however, raises tricky issues about privacy and having DNA on file with the state, which is why the school can't do it on its own.

Drawing blood also brings safety and training factors into concern, especially if school nurses or administrators are expected to 'administer' the investigation. A urine sample has a smaller potential of disease exposure. Blood draws/ specimen disposal can be worky business in the school setting.

With out good quality of instruments (sanitation) blood test is risky.
