  3. Does anyone have a Bio Rad IH-READER 24? If so, what are your pos/neg experiences?
  4. Can someone show me where "it is written" that lab blood draws (any lab draws) must not be done during transfusions and how long of a wait period after the transfusion?
  5. The only time we perform an antibody screen on a postpartum specimen for RhIG is if, for some reason, we do not have record of one from prenatal testing.
  6. Emergency Released Blood..... Does anyone wait until the trauma patient is stable before getting a blood sample to perform a screen and XM when releasing emergency uncrossed blood? NO...I don't wait...but I am being told by my Lab Manager that I need to do this. ???????????
  7. Same here, entire unit...except well over 30 years.
  8. We phone once. When a nurse signs out the blood (electronic) we have a place where they must confirm the consent form and the physician's order to transfuse is on the chart.
  9. We must have a current ABO/Rh done on the current visit.
  10. We are neither AABB nor CAP (we were for many, many years but our new lab director dropped them both). We are inspected by the Joint Commission only. Does the Transfusion Service have to develop an IQCP Plan? There was a thread on here when IQCP first came about but I am not able to find it.
  11. Is there already a discussion on here on developing an ICQP for the Transfusion Service? I am not able to find one.

  13. Yes, we have a Communication Log in each department and it works.
  14. Does anyone know if there is an Antibody Titer QC system on the market?
  15. My Helmer D8 has a lot calcium deposits, which I thought was rust. I use distilled water and Cleanbath. Any ideas how I can stop this from happening? I am on my 3rd order of new baskets.
  16. Very rarely...so we only QC the Enhance when we do
