Laboratory turnaround times in response to an abrupt increase in specimen testing after a natural disaster.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES Understanding how key indicators change during extreme circumstances could help laboratories maintain high standards when responding to disasters. We assessed the effects of an earthquake on turnaround times (TATs) at a hospital laboratory. METHODS We examined TATs for 709,786 potassium tests and 196,795 urine cultures from February 2010 to… (More)
