Policies & Procedures


The POCT Program assures patient and health care personnel safety through thorough communication, education and monitoring of staff performing POCT testing.  Issues are addressed in the nursing procedures to include manufacturer guidelines and include steps that are consistent with hospital policies.  These hospital policies include patient identication, alert value protocol, and blood-borne pathogen safety precautions.  Quality Indicators are monitored for "test specific" issues which may compromise patient results.
