Monitored Collection

Another type of collection is the monitored collection. Monitored collections occur when the collection must take place in a multi-stall restroom with partial length doors.

The collector enters the restroom with the donor, but the donor goes into the stall alone and closes the door. It is preferred that the collector be the same sex as the donor, but it is not required so long as the collector is classified as a medical professional.

Note: A collection which is not monitored may also be conducted in a multi-stall restroom, provided that the collector secures ALL of the stalls (bluing agent, etc.), secures ALL water sources and other potential sources of adulterants (soap dispensers) in the restroom, and posts signs or otherwise secures the restroom from entry by unauthorized personnel.
