Presentation Transcript
lab critical control points
How satisfied are your physicians/nursing with your services?

Are the values you produce consistent with the clinical picture?

Does your TAT meet patient care needs?

Is your off-site lab work timely and accurately?

Laboratory errors affect patient care and need investigation.

Are you failing PT?

Is the equipment functioning properly?

Maybe the tech wasn’t completely trained?

Laboratories need to increase patient outcomes orientation.
