This part of the project was conducted at the Central Specimen Reception (CSR) of the pathology laboratory located at the campus housing Hospitals A, B, and C, where all specimens and test order forms for those three hospitals are delivered for processing. We undertook a retrospective audit of the pathology service paper-based error log from January to June 2009 and of the revised computerised error log that was in operation from 1 March 2010. Data analysis incorporated all errors recorded up to 9 October 2011.
