I have a float position for the company so every day I am in a different lab but the procedure is the same across the board. Pediatric Associate typical day consists of opening up the lab. Turning on all the equipment for the day from the computer, CBC machine, bilirubin machine, UA machine, and the z-conn ( which connects the CBC and UA machine to the computer) in order for the results to cross over to the EHR. Run controls on the CBC, UA, and bilirubin machine every morning. After all, that fill out the quality control book which includes the temperature and humidity of the lab, temp for the incubator that hold the agar plates, that biohazard bags have been changed, all controls have passed for the day, and that the eyewash stations are working properly.
