Can you get sick if exposed to the smell of human urine?

a woman i care for has "accidents" a lot. It is soaked into the carpets and her apartment smells of urine so bad sometimes that my nostrils burn. I'm concerned because i have been feeling sick when in the apartment.

Human urine is sterile. The Ph in the urine concentrated from evaporation and multiple accidents compound the smell making it almost unbearable. The smell itself cam make you nauseous, but is overall harmless. Best to treat like a pet stain if cleaning it up or an odor-neturlizer helps a bunch. Good luck.

Sick as in throwing up? Yes. Will you get a disease or virus? most likely no.
Why isnt this woman wearing a diaper? You should talk to her family or her nurses or someone. It might be more dignified for her to wear a diaper. It would definitely be easier to clean up.
