Just want to reach out to all those indviduals that work in Pediatrics and ask, are you now doing all your own labs?  This task has now been put upon our staff and it started just before COVID hit.  We only call lab if we have a difficult time with obtaining the sample.  It has taken a great deal of time away from bedside, and seems we are repeating more labs.
