Blood Glucose Machine Tracing

Recently a focal point for surveyors is blood glucose machine tracing - first start with blood glucose machine quality control, how to clean (bleach only - air dry)? High BS control range? what if out of range? - focus on BG accuracy which affect insulin use and pt care and safety.  Check your manufacture recommendation and follow accordingly.

Do you have a thermometer in your med room and document it daily? better to have one - focus on med safety.
