The nurse asks you to empty your pockets as part of the urinalysis protocol. You have a pocket carry and/or she see's your IWB holster & firearm.
This sort of happened to me yesterday. Except, I didn't have a firearm on me as I should have, it was in the car. I'm still a CPL newbie, but carrying as I type this. I imagine that I would have been a deer-in-the-headlights after she asked. She might have thought I was trying to hide something like fake piss strapped to my leg. I had some 9mm cartridges, keys, wallet (with CPL), phone, and my EDC knife.
Has anyone had this happen before? What did you do or say? What happened? What would you do if you had your EDC and in my shoes?

Assuming there is no prohibition on carry in the clinic, nothing much. I most certainly would not let the weapon out of my possession. If an objection was raised put it in the car, pee in the bottle.

This begs the question... Is that a pistol in your pocket, or are you just glad to pee me?
Sorry I HAD to do it....
Don't call 911, call 1911...
I suffer from chronic & incurable "Condition One"
But I've learned to live with it.
Under no circumstances should you pee your pants! This tends to extend the testing time.
I haven't had this happen yet but my company has gone to random drug sampling. Something to do with the new laws in this industry. I would just say sorry but I have a CCW and currently carrying a firearm. I can keep it in my possession or lock it in my lock box in the truck. Whichever way they would prefer it..
No 2A, No UA! No I don't think it would work either.
Well I wouldn't let her hold the GUN while you pee.
Joking aside, and issues of right and wrong aside, unless your job requires you to carry and you are sent for testing while on the clock, wise person would leave it in the car/safe/locked whatever.
For the most part there are no rules in drug testing. Yes, be shocked. Believe if you wish that I don't know what I'm talking about.
Word of advice. If possible, get tested independently on the same day by your own physician.
If possible, get a saliva or hair test or both.
And don't tank up excessively to make sure you can do it. Excessively dilute urine will be considered "adulterated" and your consequence will either be
a "fail" or a request for an observed sample. Then they'll really get a look at your gun.

My son works in a radiology clinic. He's had lots of run ins with carriers. He gives them a paper shirt and shorts to wear. Hes had more than one try to conceal into the X-ray room, and a few ask how they should carry their gun while being X-rayed! He gives them two choices, leave it in their car, or in the little locker with their clothes. Up to them. DR
Trying to conceal while wearing a paper shirt and shorts? I cannot even begin to fathom how that would be possible (nor would I want to).
Edit: Okay... I could how if they were wearing a belly band or something similar, but other that that... I got nothin'.
Well this is a non issue for me. I am retired.
As a medical professional in Florida I have seen numerous people come into the ER carrying. Personally, I don't get it. If you come into the ER and you are sick, the first thing that you are going to be asked to do is strip down and get into a hospital gown. If you aren't sick, then you shouldn't be in the ER.
