Critical Findings and Potential Interventions

Timely notification to the requesting health-care provider (HCP) of any critical findings and related symptoms is a role expectation of the professional nurse. A listing of these findings varies among facilities. Positive RSV, influenza, and varicella zoster cultures should be reported immediately to the requesting HCP.
