Lab TS: Responsibilities Before Clinic

Edit

Before Clinic:

Note. In the past, we used to pend labs for Labs-Only visits on Thursday by ordering future labs as addendums to a previous visit, and getting Dr. Meah or Dr. Thomas to sign them. This created problems with getting the labels to print on Saturday, so we don't do this any more.

Instead, the CMs "check-in" Labs-Only Visits first thing on Saturday clinic day, labs are pended in that visit, and the first attending to arrive signs them. This triggers printing of the labels in the Labs room. If the patient does not show up, the orders should be canceled, and the CMs should be notified to go back and mark that visit as No Show.
