You are required to perform a urinalysis (dip stick) as a part of every driver certification
and recertification medical examination and to record test results for:
- Specific gravity.
Proteinuria, hematuria, or glycosuria may be an indication for further testing to
rule out any underlying medical problem.
You should advise the driver of any abnormal findings and when indicated, encourage
the driver to seek primary care provider evaluation, particularly if an abnormal
urinalysis could indicate the presence of a medical condition that if left untreated
could result in a serious illness that might affect driving.
When an abnormal urinalysis is indicative of a medical condition that endangers
the safety and health of the driver and the public, you should not certify the driver
until the etiology is confirmed and treatment has been shown to be adequate/effective,
safe, and stable.
