The examination is conducted by an expert who has been trained to interpret stool samples.
The doctor who conducted the exam is required to sign a declaration that says he or she “does not know whether the sample is contaminated with stool.”
If the doctor does not sign this declaration, it is up to the public to come to the doctor’s house to request a sample.
A sample is taken from the patient and sent to the office of the public health official.
The public health officer will then check the sample and then sign the declaration that the sample was contaminated with fecal material.
A stool sample is tested by an immunologist and a stool analyzer.
A technician takes the sample, puts it in a plastic bag, seals it, and sends it to the Public Health Ministry, which tests the sample.
If the results match, the sample can be sent to a laboratory to be analyzed.
A person may not use the samples for the purposes listed in the declaration.
A public health department official will review the results, give a warning letter to the patient, and notify the patient that a sample has been tested.
A urine sample is also sent to an immunology lab for analysis.
The patient may request a stool analysis by contacting the physician who performed the stool examination.
The sample may also be tested for the presence of parasites.
The stool sample must be tested to determine whether the person is infected with the pathogen.
The person’s symptoms may include vomiting, diarrhea, and fever.
In a case of suspected infection, a stool test can be conducted.
The procedure can take about two hours, and the results are sent to one of the two public health departments.
If it’s confirmed, a diagnosis is made.
In the case of confirmed infection, the doctor who performed stool examination is called the physician of record.
He or she may ask questions, perform blood tests, or perform other tests that can determine the cause of the patient’s illness.
If a doctor does determine that the person has acquired the infection, he or her can be fired.
The medical examiner, an official responsible for overseeing the case and performing the stool examinations, and an immunologists and stool analyzers are all trained to perform stool analysis.
In some cases, a medical examiner may conduct a stool examination of an elderly person who has died.
However, it’s more common to conduct a test for someone with diabetes.
If that person dies of the disease, the medical examiner and the public hospital must also perform a stool study.
If no one has the illness, a doctor who performs the stool exam will send the sample to a public health lab.
The lab will analyze the stool sample and compare it with the stool samples of the person’s relatives, friends, or neighbors.
If they match, it means the person was infected with a pathogen and is at risk of developing diabetes.
The tests are only performed once, at a hospital or a doctor’s office, so the public is advised to wait at least six weeks before making a request for a stool exam.
