Publisher Comments:

Palkos Medical Laboratory Procedures, third edition, teaches the theory, principles, and pathology behind testing procedures for laboratory personnel. This is a competency-based textbook and reference that also functions as a workbook and laboratory manual by providing Procedure Competency Checklists for a step-by-step guide to proper protocol. Safety and total quality assurance have been emphasized throughout the text and current HIPAA regulations are introduced when appropriate to the laboratory setting. It is current in the new lab procedures set by CLIA and OSHA, Universal Precautions, and quality control. The more knowledgeable the lab personnel and accuracy of the test results, the greater the care provided to the patient.

Synopsis:

Palko's Medical Laboratory Procedurescombines theory with hands-on practice of the procedures most frequently performed in the physician's office laboratory. Learning to perform basic tests manually gives students a clear understanding of the theory behind the test, as well as an understanding of how the automated laboratory equipment works. It is current in the new lab procedures set by CLIA and OSHA, Universal Precautions, and quality control. It is written in a friendly and easy-to-understand format.
