STAT OR EMERGENCY TESTS

STAT or Emergency Tests should be indicated by checking the appropriate box(es) on the regular requisition slip. It is essential that the physician's extension and/or beeper number be on the slip so that the lab may call him/her with the results if they are critical values. We ask your cooperation in reserving the STAT request for life-threatening situations where results are needed for immediate decisions about patient management.
