Part 8: End of Day Tasks

Edit

Tell the Head TS how many flu shots you gave.

IMA requested that we let them know how many flu vaccines we gave out in clinic each weekend. Please tell the Head TS approximately how many flu vaccines were given so they can report this to the clinic manager.

Clean Up the Labs Room!

Please do this before you leave, or IMA will send us an angry message that we have left things out of place.

For a guide on how every drawer and cabinet should look, see Cleaning Up and Restocking the Labs Room. If you need to know where to get more of something to restock a bin or drawer, please see Supply Locations.

Blood/Urine/GC Swabs

At the end of clinic, deliver all samples to the Icahn Building, 8th Floor. Make a left out of the elevator then turn right. Go to the window on the left at the end of the hall that says “Drop off specimens here".

Insulin

The labs TS is in charge of returning insulin that was not picked up in clinic that day to the storage fridges in the Student Lounge. Insulin should be given to the Labs TS by the Chronic Care Seniors in clinic that day, but the Labs TS should also check both the red and yellow PDAP boxes before leaving. When you enter the student lounge from the main door, there should be a storage room on your left. To access this room and the fridge inside, you will need these codes. Please email the Pharmacy Chair sharon.barazani@icahn.mssm.edu with the number of insulin pens you return to the fridge.

Dispensary of Hope (DOH) Forms

Take the completed forms from the blue lock box (key located within the PDAP box) at the front of clinic, and place these in the red lock box in the student lounge (key located within the student lounge fridge, see above for codes to student lounge closet and fridge).

Pap Smears

Make sure ThinPrep vial is labeled with patient name, MRN, and DOB in black ink. Also please place the printed requisition order with the specimen in a hazard bag. LABEL THE BAG EHHOP (either with tape or sharpie).

Go to Annenberg 15th floor. Turn left into A15-36.

paproom

Once in the room, immediately turn left again to enter a small office. Directly ahead, you should see two blue bins. One is labeled "cytology". Place the lab container (labeled with patient name, MRN, and EHHOP) into the container. There should be a log book nearby. Record the patient name, MRN, EHHOP, and Dr. Meah or Dr. Nentin as the contact

In general, you can always talk to a staff member to ensure you are putting it in the right bin!
