Improperly Labeled Specimens
Advanced Diagnostic Laboratories at National Jewish Health will not accept any specimen that is not properly and completely identified. On a tube, we require two unique patient identifiers.
The requisition that accompanies the sample must have the:
- ordering, resulting and billing entity name
- phone number
- fax number
- contact name
