We use the date of accessioning as the DOS and we wouldn't accession it 
until we have received the specimen/materials.

> When accessioning a case for consultation, do you use the date on the paperwork from the referring hospital/pathologist as the new "Date-of-service"?  If so, what do you do when the paperwork gives a date (say Friday) and then the specimen is not sent out until the following Monday?  Thank you.
