This paper looks into the methods used to collect blood glucose samples in the post-operative coronary artery bypass patient. Current practice is waking a patient hourly to obtain blood via a finger prick. This project revolved around a change to this process to optimize the amount of sleep a patient was able to get post-operatively while still maintaining hourly blood glucose sample collections. SafeSets were used to collect blood samples, and a retrospective chart analysis was done to compare the intervention group to the pre-intervention group. Data resulted in approximately the same amount of blood glucose checks post-operatively, collected differently however. In conclusion, this process change greatly decreased the amount of times a patient was disturbed for a finger prick and allowed for a most restful first night after surgery.
