Bon Secours Hampton Roads Laboratory offers outreach stat testing to its clients. When a client orders a test on a stat basis, with allowances for transportation, the laboratory will call results back to the ordering physician within 4 hours of receipt in the laboratory.
While the laboratory provides stat testing for its clients on a wide range of tests, it is important to note that certain tests cannot be processed on a stat basis. Examples include microbiology and virology cultures, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing, many special chemistry tests and allergy tests.
The process for ordering tests on a stat basis is as follows:
Step 1: Client calls laboratory (757) 889-5141. It is critical that the client identify exact location, including office or suite numbers.
Step 2: A courier is dispatched.
Step 3: Processing of the stat specimens begins after specimens are received in laboratory.
Step 4: The laboratory will phone the stat results to the ordering physician’s office immediately after specimen testing is completed.
