Dimension® EXL™ with LM Integrated Chemistry System Competency Checklist
Education resource material designed to document competency mastery on-the-job. This Competency Checklist represents all learning objectives for this training area.
Dimension® EXL™ with LM Integrated Chemistry System Competency Checklist Once an employee has acquired the necessary knowledge and skills to perform basic operation tasks this checklist can be used to observe the employee perform the required tasks for their core job responsibilities and to document demonstrated competency. The observer places their initials and date beside the task when it is performed successfully. Successful completion for each task is determined by the facility. The standards used to evaluate can be documented in the “Criteria” section below. Use the area below to record comments or areas of improvement. If necessary, the observer can record recommended next steps of action for areas of improvement or development opportunities. When all required tasks are completed, the supervisor and employee sign and date this document as a record of completion. Use the area on the last page to record comments or areas of improvement. If necessary, the observer can record recommended next steps of action for areas of improvement or development opportunities. Criteria - Standards for successful completion of each task (e.g. Accuracy, Time, Quality, etc.): Observer’s Initials and Completion Date Topics/Tasks System Overview Identify major hardware components Identify major software components Complete hardware identification worksheet Complete software matching exercise HM/LOCI Identify major hardware and software components of the HM and LOCI module areas Complete hardware identification worksheets Clean HM wash probes and R2 probe tip Stylet HM wash probes Replace HM pump heads Clean reagent probe drains Update maintenance log Recognize the need for replacing the LOCI vacuum cup, insert, and seal IMT Locate components of the IMT system Define the function of each IMT component Replace IMT Fluids Replace the QuikLYTE® Integrated Multisensor Condition IMT and run a Dilution Check Resolve a Failed Dilution Check Update the appropriate Maintenance Log Daily Setup with CHK Clean the sample area Empty the cuvette waste Check for Other Maintenance Perform a System Check Update the Maintenance Log Reagent Monitoring Perform reagent hydrations Quality #
