How does it work?
It provides nursing professionals with criteria for identifying specific body-site infections.

Laboratory results for your residents are contingent on the quality of the sample taken and proper adherence to transport directions. Poorly collected or transported specimens will lead to improper or delayed treatment for your resident. It is imperative that your contract laboratory provides your facility with complete guidelines for proper collection and transport of specimens. These guidelines must be available and used by all the professional staff in your facility Go Green with GoCanvas!
