Question: Pre-anemia screening

For elective surgeries, we are finding that the pre-operative hgb and/or hct is usually collected approx 4 days prior to surgery during the peri-op visit. What allowable value should be selected?

Thank you

Answer:

Since there is evidence of screening, but it is less than 14 days select allowable value "2". We added clarifying language to capture these types of cases.
