Phlebotomy Career Training Partners with Castle Branch

Press Release: Phlebotomy Career Training Partners with Castle Branch

Phlebotomy Career Training has announced on Wednesday that they have officially partnered with Castle Branch.  Mr. N’gganou head of marketing and development stated: “This is a giant step forward in helping our online and in person students secure their sensitive documents all in one place.”  Castle Branch is used by all major nursing schools and medical schools throughout the United States.

Benefits of Partnering with Castle Branch

 The partnering of Phlebotomy Career Training and Castle Branch effectively puts the school on the map with other schools such as Michigan State University and Walden University to name a few.  Nancy Kimmel, Director of Admissions stated:

“We require all of our students who are planning on doing their clinical externships through us to provide the school an exhaustive list of documents.  Some of these documents include their social security card, drivers’ licenses, health insurance cards and medical records such as drug screen results, TB skin tests and immunization titers.  No one feels comfortable sending these important and private documents through the United States mail.  We must also dedicate a special area for the students documents that is secure and locked, not to mention having one individual who must process them all.  With Castle Branch on board, students are now able to upload all their documents to a secure repository for a minimal fee.  The other great thing is that Castle Branch manages the student’s information and reaches out to them if they are missing any important documents.”

Accreditation

According to the Castle Branch website, the main purpose is to process background checks, drug screens and sensitive information which is required by colleges, universities, and nursing schools nationwide.  They are accredited by the Professional Background Screening Association which is considered the, “Gold Standard” for background screening.  Castle Branch is recognized as a consumer Reporting Agency. 

Clinical Pipeline for Externships

According to Phlebotomy Career Training administrators, their affiliation with Castle Branch fills the gaps between clinical rotations and the instructors.  They stated that their overall purpose is to help gain visibility into their students attending clinical rotations and uncover those students who will make great employees.

From the information that has been gathered, Castle Branch will help with centralized reporting of student’s attendance at their clinical sites, enable instructors to track students progress and verify that students have submitted all their necessary documents to begin their clinical rotations.

Helping Students is the Key to Their Success

Nancy Kimmel states: “Castle Branch is our externship pipeline.  The task of managing students from across the United States is an almost impossible feat for the staff here at the school.  Most hospitals have stated that before they will accept on of our students, they must be first registered in the Castle Branch system.  This system allows students to also track their own progress.  Clinical staff can make notes in their progress which is then forwarded to our online instructors.  We want all of our students to know that clinicals is a necessary component of their studies and that they must take it very seriously.”

It appears that the partnership with Castle Branch is a step in the right direction for Phlebotomy Career Training.  Phlebotomy Career Training has been in operation since 2009 and serves both in person and online students.  The programs that Phlebotomy Career Training offers include Medical Assistant, Phlebotomy Technician, Dialysis Technician, Electrocardiogram Technician and many more. Click here to learn more about programs and accreditation.

Phlebotomy Patient Safety During COVID-19

During this unprecedented time, hospital triages and urgent care centers are experiencing extraordinarily high volumes of patients. With the COVID-19 pandemic bringing traditional healthcare to a standstill, patient safety during the COVID-19 pandemic has become a hot topic among hospital staff and medical providers.

In this article we will examine some measures currently being taken to help keep patients (and healthcare providers) safe during COVID-19.

*This article is not an obligatory guideline. Local regulations should always be observed.

Measures

Indication

1. Ask physicians to critically judge the necessity and frequency of laboratory testing

2. Routine checks or protocols could be adjusted

3. Triage to split up patient stream: COVID-19 patients, non-COVID-19 patients and patients with symptoms possibly related to COVID-19

Requests

1. Digital requests are preferred, to reduce physical contact with potentially contaminated paper request forms

2. Hospital information systems

3. Primary care order entry systems

4. Application of Point-of-care testing

Crowd control

1. Patients are requested to visit the phlebotomy service unattended if possible

2. Spread outpatient phlebotomy services in space and time

3. Increase opening hours; opening during evening and weekend

4. Inform patients about peak and off times of outpatient phlebotomy services

5. Blood sampling by appointment; special locations or opening hours for patients with (possible) SARS CoV-2 infection

6. Necessity for fasting blood sampling (lipids, glucose)

7. Avoid any priority procedures for specific patient groups in order to optimize the flow of patients

8. Blood sampling on parking lots, so that patients can wait in their car

Social distancing

1. One-way routing in phlebotomy services

2. Refer the patient directly to the blood collection room (working without a counter, registering the application and performing the blood collection by the same person at the same place)

3. Reception and waiting rooms:

  • Minimize the number of chairs and tables. Clearly mark fixed seats as out of use in case a minimum distance of 1.5 m cannot be met
  • Place chairs at a minimum distance of 1.5 m
  • Maximum number of patients allowed in facility
  • Grid on the floor (with instruction that only one person is allowed per square)

4. Provide counters with screens if necessary

5. Physical barriers, such as plexiglass, can also help in situations where a 1.5 m distance is not possible

Hygiene

1. Disinfectant dispenser for patients and attendants at the entrance and exit of the blood collection site

2. Instruction for applying hand hygiene

3. Instruction for averting face during blood draw

4. Seats and tables are easy to clean (no fabric furniture)

5. Clean regularly all contact points in central areas and waiting areas (e. g. chairs, tables, counters)

6. No newspapers or magazines offered or allowed in waiting areas

7. No food or drink offered or allowed in waiting areas

8. Washable keyboards

9. Blood collection booths equipped with screens

10. Use disposable thrust belts and disposable blood collection sleeves

11. Personal protective equipment for employees (mouth-nose mask, splash goggles, gloves, apron)

12. Possibly also a mouth-nose mask for the patient/attendant after triage

Communication

Communicate to both physicians and patients about the limited capacity of phlebotomy services due to safety measures related to the COVID-19 situation

Proper Specimen Handling and Collection

proper-specimen-handling-phlebotmy-careers-mi

The world is faced with a great challenge with the COVID 19 pandemic. At this juncture, precautions should be taken while handling the specimens that are suspected or confirmed for COVID-19 in clinical laboratories to minimize the risk of infection transmission. It involves safety practices followed by laboratory staff during phlebotomy, sample processing, and proper disposal of waste.

Timely communication between clinical and laboratory staff is essential when lab investigations are requested for a suspected or confirmed case of COVID 19. Such specimens should be labeled accordingly, and the laboratory staff should be alerted to ensure proper specimen handling. At Phlebotomy Career Training, we want our students to be up to date with the best practices in the industry.

Precautions to be taken while collecting samples from the clinical laboratories:

Other than the molecular diagnostic method for COVID 19 (RT-PCR), many routine investigations are done on the patient’s blood, urine, respiratory fluid, etc. Here I am discussing the precautions to be taken while collecting and processing such samples in the clinical laboratories.

First and foremost, all laboratories should perform a site-specific and activity-specific risk assessment to identify and mitigate risks.

Risk assessments and mitigation measures are dependent on:

• The procedures performed

• Identification of the hazards involved in the process and/or procedures

• The competency level of the lab personnel

• The lab equipment and facility

• The resources available

Routine diagnostic testing of specimens can be handled in a BSL – 2 laboratories using standard precautions. All the clinical laboratories are BSL-2.

A variety of specimens are received for testing in the clinical laboratories. Different samples contain different concentrations of COVID 19.

There is risk of transmission of infection by a blood sample. So, laboratory safety plays an important role in containing the virus.

Laboratory Safety:

Following measures to be taken while collecting/processing specimens of suspected/ confirmed case of COVID 19 for routine tests.

Special considerations during Phlebotomy/Sample collection

• Patients should maintain social distancing of a minimum of 1 meter while waiting for phlebotomy and should wear a mask.

• Phlebotomist should wear appropriate PPE (Mask, gloves, gown/apron, goggles/ face shield)

• Reuse of tourniquets can spread COVID. So disposable tourniquets should be used

• Sanitize phlebotomy chairs after every use

• Decontaminate phlebotomy room

Special considerations during sample processing within the laboratory

• Use of appropriate PPE by lab technicians while processing the specimens.

• After receiving the samples in the laboratory, the external disinfection of containers should be carried using 1% sodium hypochlorite solution.

• Use of autoanalyzer for testing without opening of cap of sample containers

wherever possible. E.g., Haematological tests like CBC, HB, etc.

• Biochemical tests, microbiological tests, blood smear preparation, respiratory, and fluid cytology specimens which need opening of sample containers, should be opened in a validated biosafety cabinet.

• Avoid splash, agitation, or leakage of samples while centrifuging. After centrifugation open the tubes in level 2 biosafety cabinet.

 • After running COVID 19 suspected/confirmed samples in the machine, run 2 tubes of 1% sodium hypochlorite solution. This takes care of machine decontamination.

• After completion of processing, the sample tubes and PPE are autoclaved followed by incineration.

• Decontaminate work surfaces and equipment with appropriate disinfectant (for example hypochlorite, alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, quaternary ammonium compounds, and phenolic compounds).

Lab waste management:

Handle lab waste from suspected/confirmed COVID 19 patient specimens as all other bio-hazardous waste in the laboratory. Currently, there is no evidence to suggest that this laboratory waste needs any additional packaging or disinfection procedures.
