Decrease FontIncrease FontPrintPrint

‚ÄčAll laboratory tests requested by an authorized healthcare provider are tested and reported.  If a test is not performed for any reason, the reason is documented and the physician is notified.

Missing laboratory reports could be due to a variety of reasons including but not limited to:

  • Requested test not ordered either in LIS or on the requisition
  • Test request not sent to the laboratory
  • Test not collected by lab
  • Sample not received in lab
  • Illegible or improperly completed patient requisition
  • Illegible or improperly labeled specimen
  • Test performed but not reported by lab
  • Test not performed and not reported by lab

If no results are available after the expected time for a test that has been confirmed to be ordered, contact the lab for further investigation.
