  1. @Kathyang Hi Kathy, thanks for responding. Yes, 72 hours is 3 days, but I guess in Soft it would expire right at 23:59 of the 3rd day. I had actually just figured out the solution to this - go under Products Order Service>Finish.
  2. That is pretty much what I do too and the white board as well. It just gets really confusing for different shifts when the order piles up to 8 or more..
  3. I agree with @MAGNUM 's response on the stocking. ARC does not allow facilities to stock CCPs because of the shortage.
  4. How does your facility keep track of the convalescent plasma orders? We would get around 5 each day and because of the delay in shipping, paperwork tends to get lost between shift or they wouldn't print one at all etc. and it gets confusing once we receive the product. We use ARC, and they don't put the comments in the shipping form where we place the name of the patient originally. I have to go back to bloodhub and search the order number (I pray everyday that they print the order lol) We have a form currently, but not as efficient as I'd like for it to be. Is someone willing to share how you
  5. Can someone be kind enough to share how you programmed Soft to release crossmatches after 72 hours? Is this even possible? I have experience in Meditech but a little lost with Soft. This will tremendously help our workflow. Thanks so much!
  6. @Gkloc I am reading a lot of it as of the moment. There's so many documents to go through..... Haha
  7. What do you guys think are the most challenging part of working as a lead/supervisor/manager in blood bank?
  8. It warms my heart to have found a blood bank community who is not only very knowledgeable, but supportive and kind. I really appreciate everyone's response. @John C. Staley I am coming from an outside facility. I am really curious what your experiences are when it comes to being promoted internally vs getting hired from another facility. I very much encourage collaboration, value everyone's opinion and ideas because I am cognizant of the fact that whenever I make a change, I have to make sure that it's 1. a requirement/standard 2. benefits everyone 3. streamlining workflow. Thank you an
  9. Hello everyone! I guess this question goes out to those who are currently holding a lead or supervisory position, manager or have held a similar role in past. I was wondering what tips you have for a first timer taking on a leadership role? Any tips or suggestions, things to really focus on etc. All your thoughts and comments are welcome!
  10. Thank you for all the response! I thought it makes sense just for an ABO/Rh, but so far almost all the hospitals I have worked at require a Type and Screen (which require them to have a blood bank armband). Their reasoning behind this was because it's still a "transfusion".
  11. Do you require a type and screen ordered if the patient just needs plasma? or platelets and etc? or just an ABO/Rh?
