Report Verification Stamp
In order to ensure appropriate processing and consistent management of medical information, i.e., test reports and pertinent documents requiring provider review, consider applying a stamp — maybe a variation of the stamp displayed below.
Physician or Provider initial the designated line upon review of the report and insert instructions for the nurse or MA, i.e., follow-up to be scheduled. Nurse or MA documents the follow-up appointment on the stamp. If no follow-up is needed write “NA” on the stamp. Be sure placement of the stamp does not obscure information contained within the report. All writing must be legible; if space does not allow, record follow-up information in a progress note or beside the stamp.
