Happy Monday to you all! :)
Just have a question for you regarding your percent of positive DVT studies coming out of the ER when the sonographer is on-call. We have been tracking our outcomes for the past year and have realized that only 10% (YTD average) are positive. This number only includes our after hour call in studies. (I'm sure this number would be worse if we included ALL ER patients.) Do any of you track the number of positive studies from the ER during on-call hours? We have no benchmark as we dont know what the standard is or what it even should be? Of course, we would LIKE the benchmark to be at 100%, but I just wonder what the "actual" is across the states. Are we completely off or is this just the standard "CYA" all over the nation?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
