  1. Fascinating study. Thank you for sharing.
  2. Welcome back David!
  3. Have a Very Happy Birthday Beth.

  4. I agree with Malcolm and David. Have seen this several times.
  5. I attended the MABB this Spring and sat in on this presentation. Very interesting indeed.
  6. Forgot???? That is inexcusable.
  7. Have you informed Immucor? They might want to research a recall. Or at the very least you might want to request some replacement strips for the "wasted" ones. How many have been wasted?
  8. It is not the lab staff I don't trust, it is other people.
  9. Thank you for that. I am going to save it for Lab Week next year.
  10. I totally agree. We see this here all the time. It is not a problem with the ECHO, it is usually a non specific ab reacting to either the stroma or the "glue" used to bind the stroma to the wells. We have a great flow chart now and it has cleared up 99 percent of the confusion. Beth
  11. We have been going round and round on this topic. Is there a requirement that blank anagram sheets for outdated panels be kept for any length of time? Of course I am talking about panels that have been physically discarded, not outdated ones kept for ruling out. The paper records for any patient that gets worked up and has an antibody are kept in binders if we need to refer to them in the future. FYI, we are currently CAP accredited, but not AABB. Thank you, Beth
  12. I can now report that *all* significant patient information on our old cards has been entered into our LIS. NO MORE CARDS! Welcome to the 21st Century!
  13. That is what we are doing even as I type this.
  14. I know that we get duplicate testing ordered here when one hospitalist does not see that another physician has ordered tests, and orders them again.
