The priority test request form: a method for improving communication between the physician and the Emergency Clinical Biochemistry Laboratory.
  1. A R Henderson

    Abstract

    Two forms--a priority test request form and a telephone results form--provide improved communication between the physician and the emergency laboratory of the Clinical Biochemistry Department. The priority test request form contains a list of available tests and it allows the physician to tell the laboratory exactly when emergency test results are required. The telephone results form ensures that the physician will receive a report, by telephone, of a test result although it may not be an urgent test. This allows a greater control of work flow, both routine and emergency, through the laboratory.
