OT but ... admission for this? Unless there was intractable pain / nausea, this sounds like an outpatient workup.
The only issue would be the 3 way. If they have CBI, they would be admitted. Most of the pt's in the ED who have Foleys placed for urinary retention are sent home with f/u with urology. However, hematuria pt's are occasionally admitted if the doc is concerned if the foley will just get clotted. I can go either way, in my experience. Anyway...
As for the original scenario, there is basically no way I would have called the doc back for orders for an HCG and a BMP (I would say that a CMP is not really necessary just for kidney function--although I'm a bit surprised the doc didn't order either a CMP or BMP to being with). As JBudd mentioned, in the ER, we are fully expected to just order these if a CT with contrast is ordered.
I also find little (to nothing) wrong with this scenario.
