This module is to be administered to all women 15 through 49 years of age.
We would like to perform a simple test to determine whether or not you are anemic.  The test would require us to use a sterile, disposable lancet to prick your finger to produce a few drops of blood.  Would you give us permission to perform this test?
If permission given, perform the HemoCue test.
Literal question
Was a finger stick blood sample collected from this woman?
