We use posttreatment sheets at our hospital, which list the tests we run most often. The doctors use them to indicate patients' required follow-up tests. For example, repeating a urine culture after a patient completes antibiotic therapy. The sheets are fluorescent yellow, making them easy to spot in the patients' records. These forms also have a “Special requests” section at the bottom where the doctor can add details, such as “Patient to receive antibiotics for three weeks, then reculture one week post-meds.” --Dr. Thomas Polehinke East Meadow, N.Y.
