The donor gives the specimen to the collector immediately after collection. Both the collector and employee will maintain visual contact of the specimen to the
greatest extent possible until the labels/seals are placed over the specimen bottle
caps/lids. If practical, the collector may permit the donor to wash his or her hands
right after the donor gives the collection container to the collector (and the collector
checked the temperature), provided the donor and the collector can still maintain
visual control of the specimen collection container.
