Laboratory Orders and Requisition Forms
The laboratory requisition form drives the laboratory process and must be properly completed and provided to the client to access laboratory services.
There are separate requisition forms for adults, and children and adolescents. The form for adults is white and reads, "Barnes-Jewish Hospital" at the top. The form for children and adolescents is green and says, "St. Louis Children's Hospital" at the top. Both are four-part forms. The top three copies go with the client to the laboratory. The gold copy may used for your files. The reverse side of the requisition lists available profiles. Place a checkmark in the box for each test requested.
