  1. Thank you Neil. I was going to say that. We have all in place.What I am looking for is a dashboard that someone is using so I can learn from their spread sheet.
  2. Does any of you have a Patient Blood Management program, PBM at your institution? If you do, do you have a dashboard that tracks transfusion, utilization trends (by hemoglobin), wastage by service lines? Thank you!
  3. This is how we calculate our volume: Volume reduced RBC~ =150cc (g) =70% hct X= total volume Goal HCT= 45% (Volume reduced RBC * Volume reduced RBC HCT) = (Total Volume * Needed HCT) (150g) * (70%) = (X ml) * (45%) = (150g) (70/45) X ml= 233ml total volume 233-150=83 plasma ∴ - Plasma needed = 83ml - Total volume = 233 ml Simret G.
  4. Currently, I have two hospitals join out Blood Transfusion Committee meeting. Our hospital consists of physician representation from multiple disciples such as hematology Oncology, medicine, surgery, OB, Anesthesia, pharmacy, and RNs' representation from highly transfusing locations like ICUs. We have an agenda for the meeting that will engage/ affect the physicians' service; thus, they are engaged with the discussions. There is also a dialogue in our meeting agreeing/ disagreeing in the approach that is proposed and why... So they are often engaged.
  5. Does anyone of you out there have encounter on how to manage units of RBCs that come to your Blood Bank from other institutions with a patient? Do you accept the units, or discard them? Are there any regulations that monitor this kind of event? Thank you so much for your input! Simret G
  6. To all, I am planning on creating a multi-hospital Blood Transfusion Committee and would like your help. We are an eight-hospital system. Has any of you consolidated a system hospital BTC where all would summarize their report to one committee? How often do the system hospitals report to the central committee? Quarterly? Bi-annually? I need your acumen on this. Much appreciation! Simret G.
  7. I already have one, but It is due for a review, so I am referring to the AABB and the 31st Standards for Blood Bank and Transfusion Services. I just wanted to know what others have and analyze. I am also examining the FDA Title 21, 630.10. thanks,
  8. Does anyone of you have a policy/ Procedure for Investigation of Donor Transmitted Infections And Other Adverse Events? thanks,
  9. Is there a guideline for RHIG reissue where the RHIG was issued and was not injected into the patient and sent back to Blood Bank? Note the RHIG ( Rhogam, Rhiphylac) was at room temp for hours? What does FDA/ AABB and CAP say besides to the manufacturer's insert? Thanks,
  10. Does anyone out there have a revalidation plan for Scheduled LIS downtime for hours? What kind of tests do you do once the LIS comes back to make sure things are working as they are supposed to? thanks,
  11. Thank you much Blood Bank expert!
  12. Does any of you have a good procedure or policy reporting FDA reportable occurrences that you could share? thank you!
