  2. I was immensely honoured to receive this through the post today (with a lapel badge).
  3. I just answered this question. My Score PASS  
  4. As of yet, we have been unable to migrate BCTA into the OR. But our division is looking to force the issue and put it in the OR regardless.
  5. I use Meditech and do not have any paper. As to histories, we look up each patient history when we get specimens on the patient. Normally on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, I download a copy of patient histories onto a DVD in case of Ransom Ware Attacks. The file is downloaded and saved as a Word file that is accessible from any PC.

  9. As an addendum, I would continue to make a paper backup record in case of downtime (unless you have a dedicated pc to maintain a patient record).

  11. if you have a BBIS you should stop using a paper log and just enter your results directly into the system. Eventually you will miss something important. I've seen this multiple times when doing inspections, complete with errors due to back entry of data during the inspection.

  14. I hereby forward you the link to the registration page => https://info.bio-rad.com/ww-IHD-transfusion-w-registration-lp2.html?WT.mc_id=201015029401 You'll see that if cannot make it for the live session (due to time difference), the recording will be made available about 1 hour after the live session using the same link that will be sent to you by email and you will have the opportunity to watch it at any time (and an unlimited number of times...).
  15. Dear Fellow techs, We are using Meditech Expanse in our hospital and one of the Meditech specialist( also a tech) suggested to remove the Blood bank record logbook and Syscard for documentation. All manual results should be directly resulted in the system and we do not need to write it on logsheet for documentation. For Patient history, we just need to navigate patient history on meditech and so we dont need to use syscard for documenation. What is your opinion about this idea? Is it worth it to keep and use the logsheet for documentation? I will appreciate all your
  16. Nikki - my calendar says it is 4am to 5:30am here! I hope it is available as a recording! sandra
  17. Thanks Malcolm, I was hoping you would reply. I didn't fall asleep but had to reread a few times! I left their employ 4 years ago. I don't recall selecting M- units if the anti-M was not detected by IAT. I did wonder if the policy had changed since I left, but from what you say it was already in place. The unfortunate thing for us is that we produce our own red cells, which are compatible and (probably) safe for these patients, but we have to import M- units from the UK due to the RCI report. This means we have to pay for the units and the cost of air freight for blood which we
  18. Is it possible you have someone new who is not cancelling the units properly? s
  19. I agree with you that it does sound daft, but I am in the position to tell you why this is the recommendation, despite it apparently being contrary to BSH Guidelines, as I was still working when the decision was made (albeit, I don't agree with it!). The huge majority of hospital blood transfusion laboratories now use column agglutination technology (CAT) as their "first line of attack", and many of them use the CAT that uses gel in the column, rather than glass beads. This form of CAT is particularly adept at detecting anti-M in plasma by IAT, even though the anti-M may not actually be
  20. We have an antenatal patient with previously detected anti-M. We referred the booking sample to our RCI lab who did not titre the anti-M as it did not react by IAT. The report we got back recommended we select M- units for cross-matching by IAT. This is contrary to the British Society for Haematology guidelines which say M- must be selected only if detected at 37oC. When I queried the advice I was told this is their policy. Any thoughts?
