POCT will provide efficient results for increased utilization of these results, leading to possible change in care of the patient. POCT is performed by a physician, medical technologist, nurse, licensed practical nurse, or other designated

2 Point of Care Testing Page 2 of 8 professionals as approved by GASHA. This testing is performed outside the central laboratory and in close proximity to the patient care area. POCT does not replace the central laboratory but should be seen as an extension of the services provided by the laboratory. POCT is a multi-department service. Cooperation between departments is essential to develop and maintain a high quality service. PURPOSE To ensure that when POCT devices are introduced to a department, they are managed and maintained in a safe condition. To minimize the risk to patients, staff and GASHA. POCT is performed in accordance with the quality standard requirements of the International Standards ISO Point of Care Testing-Requirements for Quality and Competence, CSA Medical Laboratories Particular requirements for quality and competence and Accreditation Canada Point of Care Testing Standard POCT equipment is standardized throughout GASHA. Test results are accurate, reliable and traceable. Note regarding Self Testing Hospital Accreditation does not cover home testing. All POC testing in the hospital is to be performed using GASHA /POCT Operator approved devices. It is not the laboratory s responsibility to operate or maintain patients POCT devices. If POCT is conducted outside the quality framework (example in the circumstances of a self-testing person), it is the responsibility of the individual to ensure that the quality of testing is sufficient for their medical or health purpose. PROCEDURE Roles and Responsibilities POCT Quality Team A multi-disciplinary team comprising medical laboratory technologists, medical director of laboratories, nursing and materials management. To act as Q-mentum team for accreditation purposes. To discuss problems and strive for continuous improvement. Based on the multidisciplinary committee s evaluation of clinical or operational requirements, provide a cost/benefit analysis and the analysis of whether or not the POCT program can be successful in the clinical setting. Rank the purchase of POCT devices in relation to other clinical equipment submissions (if required). Provides expertise and guidance in the evaluation, selection and performance criteria for instruments and reagents used in POCT and assessment of quality management outcomes while striving for continuous improvement.

3 Point of Care Testing Page 3 of 8 Ensures regular review of Point of Care, Patient Safety Learning Reports and audits, recommending suitable corrective measures for non-conformances. Recommends the development and approval of new and existing POCT programs to the Medical Advisory Committee and the Laboratory Utilization Committee. Evaluate the need for Point of Care testing based on improved patient outcomes and effective cost management. In the areas of Quality Assurance, health and safety training documentation, data and occurrence management promotes best practice for POCT according to Accreditation Canada guidelines. Laboratory Services In GASHA the Medical Director of Laboratory Medicine is responsible for the overall POCT Program. To ensure a quality program, the director will designate a POCT Coordinator to liaise with all departments regarding all POCT issues. Laboratory Services will be the resource for all other Departments in the areas of quality, equipment and training. GASHA Laboratory Services will have the overall responsibility of the POCT program. They will ensure all training, competence, QC, QA, document control, process improvement, maintenance, and other areas of the program, are implemented and maintained. Laboratory Services will develop and maintain all Standard Operating Procedures in accordance to the national standards. All GASHA staff performing POCT will follow these procedures. The Laboratory Service complies with the GASHA policies relating to conflict of Interest and Confidentiality. POCT Coordinator identifies suitable POCT equipment for evaluation performs the evaluation installs POCT equipment in conjunction with the Lab Quality Standards Coordinator, writes POCT procedures trains GASHA staff prepares worksheets, log books etc stores maintenance schedules enforces Quality Assurance programs troubleshoots issues and devices monitors and reviews POCT procedures performs competency reviews Identifies the types and locations of all POCT equipment within GASHA. An electronic inventory of all devices is maintained. Is responsible for ensuring that all GASHA staff performing POCT have current competency training and documentation.

All staff must have a unique identifier (password) where applicable. No password must be shared with another staff member. An accurate and up-to-date maintenance log must be maintained, signed and dated each day. All staff members must satisfy the quality control (QC) requirements pertaining to the specific instrument. Understand the principles and limitations of the POCT procedure. All patient and QC results must be documented in the correct manner with correct ID, operator, date and time and clearly indicate the results are a POCT. The manner in which information is documented will be defined in the test standard operating procedure. All staff operating POCT equipment will have up-to-date competency records.

5 Point of Care Testing Page 5 of 8 Materials Management Recognize and enforce procedures developed by the POCT Multidisciplinary Committee for request, purchase and installation of POCT devices Work in conjunction with the POCT Coordinator to ensure adequate supply of consumables and QC material to maintain continuity of service. Other Responsibilities Laboratory Quality Standards Coordinator will help with the support of the quality function and amalgamation of POCT into the Laboratory Quality System Laboratory Information Systems(LIS) Coordinator will provide guidance with LIS related issues Directors of Nursing and Unit Managers, to provide direction to nursing staff performing POCT duties, in order to ensure compliance with all quality requirements. Evaluation & Selection of POCT Equipment The laboratory is responsible to work in close collaboration with Material Management and or the department or service providing an existing or requesting new POCT programs to: Evaluate the need for POCT and investigate alternative solutions. Ensure the result produced for a rapid clinical decision cannot be met by the central laboratory. Perform cost benefit analysis on any new and existing POCT programs.
