Ordering Labs & Lab Results

How are lab tests ordered?

The laboratory personnel need an order from your Health Care Practitioner to have the appropriate specimens collected and tests performed. If you come to see us personally we will ask you to register prior to having the tests done to assure that appropriate information release and billing procedures are followed. The results of your tests will then be sent to the persons or organizations that you have indicated when you registered.

Can I get copies of my Lab Results?

Yes, copies may be obtained from the Health Information Management department at Vernon Memorial Hospital, provided that you had the test specimens collected at Vernon Memorial Hospital. Otherwise you should contact your Health Care Practitioner for copies of the results.
