1P preop Used to indicate that a service is to be performed prior to a scheduled surgery. When ordering a service and using the pre-op priority, a check is done to see the amount of time that must be allowed for performance of the service. When the order is placed, a message can be generated indicating the time needed for the service so that it is not ordered in conflict with a scheduled operation.

1R routine Routine service, do at usual work hours.

1S stat With highest priority (e.g., emergency).
1T timing critical It is critical to come as close as possible to the requested time (e.g., for a through antimicrobial level).
1UD use as directed Drug is to be used as directed by the prescriber.
