We have been doing that also, but was just told in a recent audit that
wasn't good enough. They wanted to see the order written in the chart.
Haven't resolved this problem yet.

We have a "Special Studies" section in the report that we
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??????
