No. You cannot pass: Herpes through your urine. Also remember that all hospital personnel are taught to safely handle blood urine and other specimens so as not to make them at risk of contracting any illness. You don't have to worry and i hope you can relax and have a happy and peaceful holiday season. Thank you so much for thinking about the health of hospital personnel however. That speaks very highly of you as a person. Best wishes.
