New Time Frame Limitation for Lab Specimen Collection Tasks

For All Inpatient Nurses

Effective Monday, Oct. 5

To promote patient safety and support nursing staff in identifying labs that are currently due for collection, the Print Label and Collect tasks will only display labs scheduled two hours ahead and four hours in the past. Tasks needing completion outside of this time frame may require you to navigate to the previous shift to complete the task.
