    Cord Blood Testing

    We are currently doing the same thing. We only perform cord blood testing on Rh neg moms, "O" moms and moms with any identified antibody.

    New Lot Immucor FMH Rapid Screen

    We have had the same problem at our hospital with the positive control being very weak. I called Immucor and they sent another Rapid Screen same lot number to see if the kit was better. It was no better than the other one. I had one tech to tell me, if he let it sits for 10 min instead of 5 min, the positive control worked better. I don't know if this is allowed, since the instructions say to let it incubate for 5 min at room temp and wash four times.

    Uncrossmatched Blood

    We do not issue blood without any paperwork or the emergency release form for the doctor to sign. If the ER does not have any kind of identifier for the patient, they have to assign a temporary medical record number and register the patient as "Doe,Jane" or "Doe,John" until they can id the patient.

    We have had a couple of patients with anti-U and we had to get our blood from Red Cross also. One patient was an OB patient and the other patient was not an OB. The units cross-matched compatible. The units need to be U negative, (which is S and s negative).

    Return to Blood Bank policy

    Our policy is to receive the blood back into inventory if it is returned back to the blood bank within 30 minutes from the time of issue.
