    Yes, our policies say "current edition". We have a cover page in our SOP manual that lists the current editions we are currently using. It's updated with each new edition, and after review of changes.

    Electronic vs Immediate Spin Crossmatches

    2nd specimen, or a historical blood type. Yes, we will use a CBC tube drawn only by our Lab staff using bedside barcode ID system.

    Worse than last year when I posted. Pretty dismal outlook in NY State.

    Training new employees

    Document every issue. Then cut him loose at the end of his probationary period. He sounds dangerous.

    SBB Online Program while Working FT

    I did mine FT while also working FT. It was brutal, but it was the fastest 12 months of my life. Takes a lot of discipline, at least 3 hours every night. You can't skip more than 2 days or you reach the point of no return. As soon as I started to feel overwhelmed, I would take a day off from work to catch up. You have NO social life during this time. However, you have a MUCH better chance of passing the test if you do it FT and then commit to take the test within 2 months of ending. Private message me if you want more info.

    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.

    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.
