|English term or phrase: Pilgrim hat|
|OKkkkkkkk... a ver que os parece... This is a container that sits on top of a toilet seat to collect urine/stool samples... They gave it the name "pilgrim hat" in English (Lord only knows why), I suppose it takes the shape of a hat... But does anyone have any suggestions for translating it? I don't think "pilgrim hat" is a very widely used term. I haven't found it anywhere on the internet, so it may just be the internal name my company has given it. If you have any suggestions for translation, please let me know!!! Thanks!!!|
|Spanish translation:20 recipientes, uso con el inodoro (váter, retrete,) para la colección de orina/excremento|
I´m very familiar with the pilgrim hat--it is placed between the lid of the toilet so the patient sits normally and what follows is collected in the "hat". It is used to collect specimens and to measure I & O (intake and output--in this case, measuring the urine that is put out).
It´s important to describe clearly that it is a recipient to collect urine that is used with the toilet. It does have a specific function that should not be confused with a general urine collector.
Terms for "toilet" vary with the region and "heces" can be used in place of "excremento"
I hope this helps...

|Thanks to everyone who responded to my question. Although cuña sanitaria ran a close second in my selection, I think that Karla´s answer is the most adecuate in order to distinguish the difference between a normal urine-feces collection container and the "pilgrim hat" (which is used on top of the toilet seat). Thanks!!!!! |
