I have added the buttons "Select unsigned" and "Select your

Which is more useful:

 Select all unsigned abnormals

 Select your unsigned abnormals

I think

         Select all abnormals


If I were to sign *any* lab results in the absence of the ordering doctor, it would either be because
        a specific result had been brought to my attention
        (for example, a phone call from the lab or from a patient)
        ... but I could select this one result myself

        I am engaged in some more substantial contact with the patient and,
        as part of the workflow, may as well sign everything that is unsigned
        and accept the lab's flags. Now I want to select all the abnormals in
        order to set their clinical significance, but they are already signed.
        As a result no cells would get selected,

The alternative flow would be to *first* deal with abnormals and *after* they had been signed and their clinical significance decided, take care of the remaining unsigned cells. If this makes more sense then I would position left-most

        Select unsigned abnormals <--- the "all" is not needed

then to the right I would position "Select unsigned" and "Select your unsigned"
