For Patients

Lab Tests Online

Lab Tests Online provides information to help patients and family caregivers better understand clinical lab tests. These include tests that are part of routine care, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of a broad range of conditions and diseases. In addition, a mobile application provides on-the-go information about laboratory tests. Medical professionals can use the site as a quick reference tool or as a resource for keeping up with advances in laboratory science.

Launched in 2001, the site is produced by the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) and is the result of a collaboration of professional societies representing the laboratory community. The Joint Commission is a partner of Lab Tests Online and serves on their editorial board.

Medical Sharps Disposal

Schuyler County residents may bring containers of syringes and sharps to the Schuyler Hospital Laboratory Monday-Friday from 7:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m., and Saturday-Sunday from 8:00 a.m. – Noon. Drop off containers during the week at the lab and on weekends use the Emergency Department entrance.

Syringes and sharps must be contained in a rigid, puncture-resistant container – such as a laundry detergent bottle or plastic kitty litter container – secured with a screw top, and labeled “Biohazard” or “Contains Needles.” The container also needs to have a label giving the address of the household it originated from. Be sure to leave empty at least 2 inches at the top of the container.

Laboratory staff will accept the appropriately labeled containers and put them in the biohazard hazard waste containers within the laboratory.
