Use of quality indicators to compare point-of-care testing errors in a neonatal unit and errors in a STAT central laboratory.
Cantero M, Redondo M, Martín E, Callejón G, Hortas ML. Clin Chem Lab Med. 2015;53:239-247.
In this study of a single neonatal unit, point-of-care testing resulted in many more quality errors compared to central laboratory testing. More than 45% of the point-of-care tests lacked appropriate patient identification, a problem the authors hope to fix by changing to a barcoding system in their hospital.
