  1. No, we don't run any controls with it.
  2. We still use the IS crossmatch. (No electronic crossmatching here yet ) If the sample is not on the bench(we put it away) we would also perform RA/RB to confirm the group on the sample. I believe we are moving towards the 2 sample policy and can then bring in electronic XM. Until then I will spend my time doing all these IS crossmatches.
  3. In our system the physician can either order a screen only, culture only, or a screen + culture. The lab does not reflex culture based off of the results when only a screen is ordered, so it is up to the physician to request an addon for a culture after viewing the results. If a culture is ordered it is worked up regardless of negative results for the UA. Cultures are probably ordered preemptively and thus worked up on > 70% of urines, but it really depends on the physician. I would be curious as to what our stats are for urine culture growth rates. On a side note, how often do your hospitals perform urine microscopics? Ours are not order-able by physicians, but reflex off of any positive for PRO, NIT, WBC, BLOOD. As a result we read dozens a shift.
