Hospital "Notme Medical Center" supported an outpatient clinic for patients requiring transfusion, some due to sickle cell anemia. Often these were young adults that came into the clinic very early in the morning.

Normally at least one light was left on, usually the bathroom light, while they were waiting. At 0530 the first of two tagged crossmatched

    Transfusion Errors
