Inpatient Radiology Orders

Thursday, January 24, 2008 at 3:06:58 PM

Reminder: When entering an order on an inpatient for Radiology Services, it is mandatory in the space for "Clinical Indications" to enter Signs or Symptoms that the patient is experiencing which necessitates the test(s) ordered. The statements "Rule out" (R/O) or "Follow-up" (F/U)are NOT acceptable. Unfortunately, if a patient presents from the floor with the order saying "R/O" or "F/U", the Radiology department will contact you and advise you to cancel the order and re-enter an appropriate order.
