I am writing this in an effort to find out if/what other facilities are doing to ensure that all tests/labs/procedures etc. results are communicated to the patient and documented in the record. I currently work as an internal consultant and am charged with making results verification work. It has been a difficult and time consuming process.
Does anyone have a documented results verification process?
Do you have standing orders/protocols that support such a process?
Thanks for the insight.

It appears results verification isn't very important and no one is doing it....
