Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The toxicology laboratory can fill an important role in improving patient care. Whether the service provided by the laboratory is specifically in support of a pediatric population or devoted more to the entire hospital population, the considerations involved in its configuration are the same. These considerations involve establishment of an open dialogue between the laboratory and clinical staff, an integrated and comprehensive analytic approach, and provision of reliable laboratory data in a timely fashion.
