RE: necessary info on surgery req

From:"Garrison, Becky" <>

Our docs do not sign the requisition; their name is printed from computer
field only.

Question.  How well do your docs submit clinical history and do you refuse
specimens with insuficient clinical history??

Hi All,

I have some questions for those of you who work in a hospital and receive
specimens/requisitions from surgery. We are re-doing the hospital form and
trying to determine what needs to stay on the form. 

My questions are: Is there a place on the req for the surgeon to sign, does
the surgeon sign the req, do you know of any regulatory requirements to have
the surgeon sign the req?
