  5. To BB (ASCP) or Not

    Very, very, very short term only. A day after the test, most of it went from my brain directly back into that book. LOL.

  7. To BB (ASCP) or Not

    I'd say go for it! Memorize the Technical Manual. Also the Antigen Facts Book. And use the BloodBankGuy website; it's amazing.
  8. Orange Regional Medical Center is searching for a Night Shift Supervisor and 2 Night Shift Techs (MLT or MT). Must be licensed in NYS. Great pay and benefits, including shift diff. Apply at www.ormc.org
  9. Siemens Coag Instruments Question

    We have the IL Tops 550s and LOVE THEM!
  10. Blood Bank staff

    Staffing in NYS labs right now is reaching catastrophic levels. Can't even find generalists.
  11. CAP TRM.31450 Comparability of Instrument/Method

    For the list of tests that I correlate (see above), we do 5 of each (at least one pos and one neg in the set of 5).
  12. IL HIT test

    We have the TOPS 550s and we plan to implement HIT testing next year.
  13. 4 hours to transfuse

    It's 4 hours from issue time from the Blood Bank.
  14. Dropping Blood Bank Bands

    We have had Epic for 6 years and dropped our BB band. Best thing we ever did. We require two draws, the second has to be OUR phlebs in the Lab using the MobileLab/Rover with barcode scanning. Our ED also has Rover, but can "cheat" by force printing multiple labels. So we never let them collect the 2nd. Until we get a second (we also use existing CBC tubes), we give type O.
  15. Beckman DxH

    Hello all. We are choosing between a Beckman DxH and a Sysmex XN. I would like comments from people who have recently (within 2 years) purchased either of these. Pros and cons. Specifically if you have the slide maker/stainer. Thanks.
