    Separate Blood Bank Armbands

    We use Blood Bank arm band and have no plans to discontinue. We also require ABO retype if our patient does not have historical blood type and is not type "O"

    Daily Reagent QC requirements

    We were cited by CMS for not having negative control for Anti A, Anti B, Referencecells and Selectogens 1-3. We had just had our AABB/CAP inspection with no issues and felt we followed Immucor package insert. I would add negative QC because it is simple and I could not win the battle
