Has anyone come across this? Mum has some green in her pad this morning, along with urine. Could it just be from the pad?

I believe certain medications can turn urine green - is she on anything? If not then personally I would just keep an eye on it. If happens again it might be worth ringing 111. But, like you said, it could just be from the pad - particularly if it is just in one place

Green could be infection but... My OH has greenish tinged wee after eating peas, the only veg he will eat so usually has a large portion. Beetroot is well known for turning wee red / pink as well 🙂

Thank you both for your replies. Having seen it again yesterday morning, it is just in one place and I think it's the dye from the printing on the pad. Sunday evening's carer showed me in some concern so naturally I panicked.
