Bite-sized Learning - review all results before discharge

A reminder this week for doctors to check all results before discharging patients, even if they haven't ordered any tests themselves.

Some patients have been readmitted to treat abnormal test results, which were picked up after they had gone home.

Whilst a doctor may not have not ordered the tests personally (and therefore might not expect to see any results), it's still important they check that all tests ordered have been reviewed before discharging the patient.

It's also a good opportunity to check any documents you may have "saved not signed", or view messages waiting for you in your inbox.
