Is your point-of-care testing on point?

NHMSFAP update


Glucose meters are point-of-care devices, which require quality control testing to ensure the device is giving an accurate reading. Every accredited non-hospital facility must have a glucose meter readily available within the facility.

The Non-Hospital Medical and Surgical Facilities Accreditation Program (NHMSFAP) has developed a short video highlighting the key requirements of using and testing a glucose meter to assist facilities in meeting the NHMSFAP Point-of-Care Testing accreditation standard.

The video is also available on the NHMSFAP standards, guidelines and policies page.
