POC Organization

Good Morning All,

How does your facility handle the oversight of physician practices? Do you have one POC Coordinator that handles the lab and the practices? Or do you have a department that divides the responsibility? Or is it set up some other way? Any information on how your facility organizing POC oversight would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,

We have 2.5 point of care coordinators that oversee both the practices and any hospital based point of care testing in the system.  We focus on the laboratory testing and related standards only.  We visit each practice in person at least once a year for an inspection.  There is a hospital safety department that oversees and inspects on the environment of care standards.   Hope that helps.

We have one POCC for all of the hospital areas. Then there is a nurse educator that takes care of all the practices. We are 2 separate areas.

We have 2 POCC, as well as our POC supervisor, at this campus. We have 1 POCC at our other campus (much smaller). All clinics are associated with one or the other, and we just kind of "share" responsibility for them. We do rely on our nurse educators, too.
