Process for Notification of Positive COVID-19 Results

Effective immediately, the lab will call the inpatient unit and communicate the first positive COVID-19 test result to the first team member that they speak to. The lab will document in the EMR who they give the result to. 

It will be the responsibility of the team member on the unit to alert the nurse caring for the patient of the result.
