Special Instructions

If the wound is bandaged, remove the dressing and clean the wound with sterile water or normal saline solution prior to collection.

Collect specimens from the center of the wound, not from the wound’s edges, as they might be contaminated with outside skin flora. Then use a sterile swab or syringe to obtain a sample of the drainage in the wound.
