A point-of-care blood testing device, such as a blood glucose meter, should be used only on one patient and not shared. If dedicating one blood glucose meter to a single patient is not possible, the meter must be properly cleaned and disinfected after every use following the guidelines found in System Maintenance and Cleaning and Disinfecting sections of this Resource Guide.
Clean and disinfect the meter after each use to prevent the transmission of blood-borne pathogens. Healthcare professionals should wear gloves when cleaning and disinfecting the meter. Wash hands after taking off gloves. Contact with blood presents a potential infection risk. A new pair of gloves should be worn before testing each patient.
