    What are considerations/laws, etc when law enforcement brings patient to the emergency room requesting nurses to obtain a urine sample?  How do you bill, who do you bill, does the hospital need to perform MSE?

    Any information you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
