  62yo M returns because of 4 mon hst of progressive difficulty swallowing solids and liquids. He had barium swallow 2 months ago, but has not recieved results. Review of chart shows no test results or notation to follow up visit. Radiology dept says the sent results 2 months ago & it showed esophageal carcinoma. What can prevent delay?

a- ask radiology to fax results not mail it.
b-encourge pt to return for a f/u to discuss results
c-keeping a log of ordered tests that require f/u by office
d- refer all pts to GI problems to specialist
e- retraining staff on proper filling and notification procedures.


Why not A at this point for this pt. Why is it C?

man... I have to type all of these questions just to get some explanation. Consuming my study time. :(
