    Correct Answer
    A. Record and "read back" the complete test result
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to record and "read back" the complete test result. This is important in order to ensure accurate communication of critical test results over the phone. By recording the result, the receiving individual can refer back to it if needed and by "reading back" the result, they can confirm that they have understood and relayed the information correctly. This helps to prevent any errors or miscommunication that could potentially have serious consequences.

      Relevant patient historical data

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The process for effective hand-off communication should include medications, treatment, and relevant patient historical data. This is because when transferring care from one healthcare provider to another, it is crucial to provide comprehensive information about the patient's medications, ongoing treatment, and their medical history. This ensures continuity of care and helps the receiving provider make informed decisions about the patient's care. Including all of these elements in the hand-off communication helps prevent errors, improve patient safety, and promote effective collaboration among healthcare professionals.
