Is an HIV test part of the blood workup before surgery? : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread

I'd like to know if the blood workup done before surgery includes testing for the HIV virus. Is that now routine when going through pre-admission testing? Thank you

An HIV blood test is not part of the standard blood workup before surgery. It is not standard routine at the Good Samaritan Hospital when going through pre-admission testing.
