Turnaround times for reports on uncomplicated biopsies in five major anatomical pathology laboratories in NSW, Australia.

Pathology 1999 Nov;31(4):406-12

Department of Anatomical Pathology, Gosford Hospital, Australia.

This paper reports on the findings of a 1997 survey of the turnaround times (TATs) of small, uncomplicated biopsies performed in five major anatomical pathology (AP) departments in NSW over a period of four weeks. A comparative analysis of the performance of the departments shows that in the majority of cases the standard of two working days between specimen receipt and availability for dispatch after verification (as proposed by the College of American Pathologists) is met. This is within the two working days of the Clinical Indicator of the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards. Read More
