KSB’s Laboratory and Emergency Department have been working collaboratively to improve our turn-around time for troponin studies. This is a test to determine if a patient is having a heart attack.
Our benchmark is 50 minutes, and frankly we frequently exceeded that in the past. In looking at the last half of 2010 we have reduced this time to an average of around 37 minutes.
Congratulations to all for their hard work in providing world-class care to our patients!
