    DAT validation in gel

    I am validating DAT's in the gel method (Biorads). I have several DAT's (Cord) positive in tube, confirmed LUI freeze ABO antibodies) negative in gel. Has anyone had this problem when validating in gel.

    X-Ray Irradiators

    We are in the process installing the Radsource Irradiator. Does anyone have a validation plan to share?

    Meditech Orders Inpatient vs Outpatient

    Do you manually enter the tested results into the inpatient order? Do you have a "copy" function that takes the outpatient results and copies it into the new inpatient.

    Blood Transportation to Floors

    clear plastic bags
  11. Couple questions: How do you manage outpatient and inpatient test orders? If you have an indated TS a new accession number is generated with a new visit account. Meditech generates a new accession number with each visit. Can you move the TS from the outpatient account to patient account to avoid a new TS sample. Moving account numbers in Meditech moves all tests associated with the accession number that creates more problems.
  12. We have Meditech and TAR and it is a problem. The transfusion report gives minimal information. My staff spends hours on auditing for compliance. TAR was suppose to eliminate incomplete transfusion charts, consent, vitals ,outcome. The implementation of TAR requires checking in EMR for transfusion data . IF the data is not present we have to search for documentation in the nursing notes. I would like a NPR report specific for TAR documentation. IF the information is not documented then it is an incomplete document. Unfortunately we do not have access to a NPR writer and Meditech has limited options. If you manage to get a transfusion report to please can you share it.
  13. Is there a computer work around to create an aliquot in Meditech without the aliquot (i.e A, B) adding to the DIN number? The IT card prints the DIN number with this aliquot "A". and it does not match the ISBT label. My protocol references the ISBT product code designates the aliquot (i.e AO) but an inspector indicated that this does not represent a closed system and the DIN number can not change. Looking for a protocol to address this issue?

    Procedure manuals

    Do you have a flow chart how to manage antibody identification process and dosage antibodies (Anti-M).
  15. The inspector was not happy with the A added to the DIN on the IT card and computer screen. I am going to check with my IS team to research that KB article reference by Bankergirl. It may solve the problem. I will also add Sgoertzen comment that the clinical staff can differentiates which aliquot is processed for transfusion.
