The easiest way to document a PPD placement and reading is to do the following:
- Order the PPD.
- In the Notes field, indicate where the PPD was placed and the lot#/expiration date.
When the patient returns for the reading:
- Go to the diagnostic tests.
- Select the PPD.
- Click on the green plus sign in lower-left corner to create a new result line.
- Enter the result. You can either select an alpha result, or you can type in a number.
