Point-of-Care Testing (POCT)
Per Hospital policy all patients must be identified with two identifiers:
Your Duke Unique ID is your Operator ID and is used to identify you as the person performing a glucose test.
Scan the barcode on the front of your badge.
If your ID comes up “Invalid Operator” call the POCT Office at 681-6673.
This is why you never allow anyone to use your badge.
Per hospital policy: “No hospital employee is to perform any test or procedure or transport any patient when an armband is missing or defaced” .
NEVER USE ARMBANDS NOT ATTACHED TO PATIENT….
Who does the armband belong to?
Alert Values: <70 or >350 mg/dL
Neonate Alert Values: <50 or >250 mg/dL
Scanning is everything
This prevents solutions from running into the port
and damaging the meter.
