STAT Tests

STAT requests can be accommodated by checking the ERO box on the pathology requisitions. ERO stands for "early read out" and results are usually available the day after the procedure. Please limit these requests to instances where patient care treatment plans depend on fast results.

STAT results needed on Saturdays – these can be accommodated in some circumstances. On Saturday mornings, we interpret select ERO cases that come in on Fridays.

If you require a result on Saturday, please indicate that on the requisition by checking the ERO box and writing "Saturday ERO" along with the phone number and name that the results should be called back to. You can list a specific provider to contact with the results, or you can list a call group, for example, "On call Physician for XYZ Clinic."
