Yesterday, 9-1-20, a colleague contacted George [me] because her physcian had ordered a PT and PTT as part of a pre-procedural workup. She asked what the PT/PTT accomplished, and both the physician and nurse practitioner offered no explanation. After considerable discussion, the PT/PTT order was canceled.
