Pathology Report Queries

How do you handle querying for pathology report results?  Do you query the surgeon or the resident?  


  • We query the attending.
  • We query the attending.

  • Thanks for your responses.  We do too.  We have one group of physicians in particular who get upset about these.  They are always getting them, I agree, but it's something we have to do!  When you consistently document, "mass" then path comes back as cancer (which is mostly does in these cases), a query is appropriate and warranted! 

    Thank you!
