A few physicians have expressed concern regarding pathology queries i.e. the legalities
of agreeing to path findings after the patient was discharged.
Does anyone have any insight/guideline/article to share to ease their concerns?
Our providers list pathology pending on the DCS. Then the query sent after discharge also says, pathology was pending at discharge. -- see below wording of our query.
Final pathology results were
pending at discharge and now resulted.
Please review and make a dated addendum to the
DISCHARGE SUMMARY acknowledging post-discharge findings.
