In-house Testing for Legionella and Streptococcus Pneumoniae Urinary Antigens Offered

Effective Wednesday, July 13, 2011, in-house testing for Legionella and Streptococcus pneumoniae urinary antigens will be offered in the lab at Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center. These tests are currently being sent to a reference lab but by offering them in-house, we will improve both result turnaround time and relevant clinical outcomes when diagnosing community acquired pneumonia. In addition, testing for pneumococcal meningitis will be offered on CSF specimens. Specimen requirements remain the same, a standard urine collection container for urinary antigens and CSF collected according to standard procedures when testing for pneumococcal meningitis.

PAT Scheduling Process

•All of our PATs are scheduled to eliminate patient wait, however, we know there can be exceptions.
•Once a case is posted, it triggers our team to call your patient 3-14 days prior to their procedure to schedule their PAT.  The phone number that will appear on Caller ID is 804-267-4000.
•For cases that are quick add-ons, please call 540-498-4788 to alert our staff that you have an add-on.  That allows us to find more staff or an open time slot for your patient.  This prevents extended wait times and most importantly patient dissatisfaction.
