  1. I use BCTA also with the checks online. I have looked at the Blood Locks but have not decided as of yet
  2. I use the temp-chek, if they are issued in a cooler, otherwise 15 minutes.
  3. I have even gone so far as to tell the nurse taking care of the patient that when they learned the patient's name and not the room number to give me a call back and we will discuss the patient at that time.
  4. We send our KB's to another hospital in our division and get nice 2-4 hr turn around time. They use flow. We started using them because the local ARC does not perform KB's, and with only 6 or 7 a year we couldn't justify the cost for performing them inhouse.
  5. I have wondered that myself, it just suddenly appeared when we bought our new hematrax printer.
  6. Is there a reference for the non use of very fresh blood?
  7. ARC does not allow stock supplies of the COVID plasma. On the somewhat same note, how do you take care of your AB patients when the blood center cannot or will not supply AB convalescent plasma?
  8. We too use ARC. The pack slips have the order number on them so that you can match up the order numbers. When we get orders for the convalescent plasma, we order the plasma and on the order printout, we note the patient name, then once the plasma arrives, we match up the pack list with the order printout. In the meantime, we keep all the orders and their respective printouts on our metallic white board, that is basically the only way that we have found to somewhat keep abreast of the orders.
  9. I marked it down as N/A since it has to do with AMR's and such. At least that is my thinking. During our CAP inspection in September, my inspector didn't give it a second thought.
  10. As of yet, we have been unable to migrate BCTA into the OR. But our division is looking to force the issue and put it in the OR regardless.
  11. I use Meditech and do not have any paper. As to histories, we look up each patient history when we get specimens on the patient. Normally on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, I download a copy of patient histories onto a DVD in case of Ransom Ware Attacks. The file is downloaded and saved as a Word file that is accessible from any PC.
  12. I am not aware of a free PDF download of the TM. I guess you will have to purchase the TM.
  13. TS FOR PACKED CELLS, PLT COUNT FOR PLATELETS, PT/PTT FOR FFP, AND FIBRINOGEN FOR CRYO. THAT ALL TYPICALLY GOES OUT THE WINDOW WHEN IT COMES TO TRAUMAS AND MTP'S.
  14. Issueing a full unit for approximately 30 ml and discarding the rest is such a waste. Surely there is some other alternative.
