Just a brief survey of the group:
1. Do you use rapid strep testing in the ED?
2. If yes, what do you do about negative test results?
We are looking at this issue and just want to see what others are doing.
Thanks for your help.

But we in it shall be remembered;
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers..."
