  1. 28% sounds good to me, allows units to be blood type specific and gives time for antibody identification. I remember the frustration waiting for samples. I suggest asking the Dr how/if the question incorporates risk assessment for patient care and/or is it just financial.
  2. The front and back label bar codes are identical. It maybe that when you bring the unit into your LIS system the double zeros and check digit at the end of the unit number are not used but when the vision scans the label for ABO conformation they are, thereby creating this discrepancy.
  3. If you incorporate the main exceptions to policy into your SOP; it gives techs a clear path to follow if / when time is short or it is 3am. As you indicated it is hard to get O neg little c neg units (fresh or frozen).
  4. We rarely had 10 O beg in inventory
  5. I just answered this question. My Score PASS  
  6. Sounds like I will prefer a good quality, fast black and white
  7. Never yet seen a color photocopier at any place I have worked
  8. I like the not black or red ink logic; all other colors clearly indicate an original document and not a photocopy. As long as it is permanent and waterproof any other color or shade of ink works. I personally like weird blues
  9. I am curious to know if there is a correlation between the number of serological cross matches done and those blood banks that keep opened segments. I can see that for small facilities that do relatively few cross matches with generalist techs it makes sense to keep everything. I also see for large facilities it would take up too much space. I have done both practices (different facilities).
  10. My Medical director wanted/authorized Rh pos to all during massive transfusion protocols. That made a huge difference in conserving Rh neg and especially Oneg.
  11. Agree with donellda, with the addition that a “foray into manufacturing” is not to be taken lightly and will be resource heavy in time, training, paperwork, inspections etc. and so may not be justifiable for your facility.
  12. I just answered this question. My Score PASS  
  13. I just answered this question. My Score PASS  
  14. Nothing special; tape and permanent marker. Works best if draw dry and at room temp.
