Laboratory Reports

PHONE REPORTS

INPATIENTS:  The Clinical Pathology Laboratories do not phone Routine or STAT lab results on Hospital Inpatients. Clinical laboratory results for Hospital inpatients are available to authorized personnel in Epic as soon as the results are released. Results for STATs can be set to print on Epic printers as soon as results are released. The Laboratories are, however, responsible for calling all critical laboratory values (see page 15 for Critical Value Reporting Policy).

OUTPATIENTS:  The Clinical Pathology Laboratories will only call STAT results to outpatient clinics/practices or physicians who have documented this request on the Pathology Laboratory Request Form. The Laboratories are responsible for calling all critical laboratory values.

Laboratory personnel (924-5227) are available 24 hours a day to give out verified results for all Medical Laboratory testing to ordering physicians or authorized health care professionals.
