How often are lab tests done to check on electrolytes, etc.? Does the patient have to go to the lab or clinic? Or can a lab tech come to the house?

Change in your illness and type of illness you have
Changes in medication
If you are having any issues that require attention
They can be drawn at clinic, in the lab or even at home if you are on hemo dialysis. I have never heard of anyone coming to the house to draw labs.
You should discuss this with your Doctor. They should be able to answer for you.

Lab test may depend on your current health situation, but as far as I can remember it was done on a monthly basis when a close relative need to undergo dialysis. Tests are usually done in laboratory clinic, it's very rare that a lab tech would do home service.
