We have a "Special Studies" section in the report that we count as
documentation for special stains, immunos, consults, etc. and count this as
the order. We also attach the order, from pathologist or clinician to the
requisition which we keep for 10 years.

Wondering how the rest of the Pathology World handles the regulation
states, " all tests performed in the laboratory must have a doctors
and must be documented in the patients chart." Are you using a
form when you get orders for special stains or immuno, or is the
report considered enough documentation??????
