RE: [Histonet] Pathology Report Retention in Lab


We only keep the hard copy in lab if it does have an attachment (consult, FS
written diagnosis, stone analysis, etc...).  If we don't know that it will
have a consult until later we just print another one out to attach the
outside report to.  Last year was the first  year we did that and boy did it
save room.

How long is everyone else keeping the lab copy (hard copy) of the 
pathology report in the lab files? 

Original kept in Medical Records indefinitely and lab copy is available 
on-line but does not include associated items such as drawings, reqs, 
outside consultation reports, etc..
