urine colors for geriatrics

  1. What works do u use to described urine?
    I know urine colors range from pale yellow or straw yellow to dark amber but I don't know the colors in between. On the UA color chart my pt Is at a 4. Urine is a yellow Orange color. Not a foul odor but strong urine smell....idk how to document.

    I was always taught chart what you see. If its a yellow/orange color then thats what I'd put.

    Our charting has a selection of colors we can check off.I would call that amber.
