Discontinuation of Automatic Printouts of Laboratory Results on Inpatient Areas

Effective March 14, 2009, automatic printouts of completed laboratory results will stop printing on inpatient locations. The Department of Pathology discontinued printing laboratory results for patient medical records on 01/01/2003. All Laboratory results are available on-line in both IPR and Epic. Discontinuing this automatic print job will save paper and toner costs as well as reduce confidential trash.
