MAGNUM's Achievements

  1. We require a confirmation on anyone requiring transfusion of any product. Our thinking is that if they are receiving plasma or platelets, they will probably require red cells also eventually. It is a no charge test so the patient only has to lose about 3 ml of blood and no money.
  2. DONE, SOMETIMES WHEN ARTHUR IS ACTIVE ITS ALL I CAN DO TO MANUALLY SQUEEZE THE SEGS.
  3. We just charge for each individual Ag test.
  4. I use expired units as well as saline/glycerine mix.
  5. I download all the patient histories to a desktop file on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday every week. I also have an encrypted flash drive that I download to and write over the previous data. There is a computer somewhere in the laboratory that is not down that can be used for checking histories.
  6. That is my practice, and the practice of the preceeding blood banker. Just what we do.
  7. We give Rh positive to males and females >45 for traumas and MTP's. The medical director still wants to be made aware of the switches though.
  8. Usually the only reason that we do any testing after a downtime is if the LIS has been updated, and then it is not heavily involved since I have done all the testing pre downtime.
  9. I also have a policy in my policy and procedures stating the same and also stating that the blood bank is not responsible, but the medical director is available for consultation.
  10. I do have a disclaimer for the cell saver because an outside company operates the unit during procedures, and I have never been questioned about the cell saver by CAP or JC,
  11. You are most definitively preaching to the choir.
  12. It's because cardboard boxes or shipping containers can carry dirt and other contaminants and introduce them to new environments. Also, nasty vermin such as roaches love cardboard.
  13. We leave them in the shipping box and take only 5 or so out at a time, then directly into the refer.
