Clostridium Difficile Ordering / Rapid Flu – Flu PCR Ordering

Rapid Flu Order (ED only):

The Rapid Flu order will now include the order for the lab test, Contact Precautions / Droplet Precautions, and the Flu PCR order.  The Flu PCR order will be released by the nurse if the patient is admitted and the Rapid Flu is negative.  Nursing will not need to draw an additional specimen but will simply send the transmittal sheet to the lab to be added on to the existing specimen.

When ordering Flu PCR, it will now include the orders for Contact and Droplet Precautions:
