    manual cell count control

    Thanks for the input. I checked with Joint commission, and they do not accept the procedural control. I have been working on updating my policies etc. to comply.

    Antigen Typing Charges

    Yes we charge for the antigen testing whether or not it is positive. or negative
  5. Here the type and screen/xm is okay for 28 days but the patient has to go through "preadmissions" for their pre-surgical testing and asked questions about pregnancy, prior transfusion, known antibodies. The outdate is extended 3 days passed the surgical date no matter if blood is given or not. If an antibody is found the patient is not a candidate for preadmission and has to come in within 3 days prior to the surgery.

    Eluates in GEL

    We have had that issue and found when doing the centrifugation have the brake off the centrifuge and then we also do an extra spin in the buffering process

    Transfusion Reaction Criteria

    Pathologist makes all the calls we just give them the information; pre/post vitals, reason the rx is being called, clerical checks and pre/post ABORH and DAT

    Transfusion Reaction Criteria

    I recommend to all that you poke around on the NHSN site. I'm in Massachusetts, we are required to report all of our transfusion statistics, including adding each transfusion reaction separately. It's a fair amount of work, but required by our DPH. We use their descriptions for our transfusion reaction categories.

  24. Confirmed typings printed on the label. An attached tag lists the unlicensed reagents (if antigen not on list it is licensed). Historical is listed on a separate sheet and included with the order. If historical typings were attached to the bag it would need to be clearly labeled tie tag. I can not see how historical typings could be printed on the label.
