[IP] Q about 24-hr. collection

For you lab techs and medical professionals out there: I have a friend who
forgot to save her *second* void of the day to start her 24-hr. urine
colleciton (discard the first and mark the time). So, she started with the 3rd
one and continued to the next day until that one - which equaled 24 hrs. When
she got to the lab she told them what she did (mistake). The lab tech. was
upset and wrote on her orders that it was in error, etc., therefore it
wouldn't be a real test.

My Q: Isn't 24-hrs. still 24 hrs? Wasn't that a real test?
