Communication of Critical Lab Test Results

A recent communique from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC (March/April 2015, Vol. 3, #2) reminded its members that “the provision of after-hours coverage is a professional and legal imperative for all physicians” and “recorded messages with general direction to attend at an ER or walk-in or call the BC NurseLine are not acceptable.” We would like to note that this responsibility includes being available to receive critical lab test results, which is of great help to our staff: your cooperation is most appreciated.
