Do any of your hospital based laboratories permit attending physician
members of the Vascular Laboratory Medical Staff, or any other
physicians, to enter the Vascular Laboratory after hours and perform
studies, presumably stat, on their own patients? If so, are these
studies recorded and interpreted as are studies performed by the
Technical Staff during regular working hours? Are they billed? Who is
responsible for the equipment? What other concerns might there be about
this? Do any laboratories have a written policy regarding this subject?
Any thoughts on the subject would be appreciated.
