Expedited Results & Critical Alert Values
LifeLabs and other OAML Laboratories have agreed to a defined schedule of test results that must be communicated directly to physicians based upon the two result categories described below. These reporting limits have been defined specifically for a community laboratory environment and are based on published literature as well as laboratory experience. Laboratories have an obligation to communicate these abnormal results. The ordering physicians have the professional responsibility to provide the laboratory with contact information, which will allow direct communication of these results to the physician (or delegate providing coverage during absences). If we do not already have this information, please
