We went to 24/7 coverage and it has worked out great for our hospital and of course if your tech can do general studies the ER doctors will order studies that they may not have ordered if the tech was on call. The additional numbers generated by the ER and the floors (in-patients) because we had an in-house tech justified and additional FTE.

I need some help from my Flow-net colleagues. Our ED insists on having round
the clock coverage, stating that JCAHO mandates that there must only be one
standard of care for all patients. Is this true? and if it is, how do those
facilities that use the Lovenox protocol justify that? How do facilities with
limited staff handle this?
