  1. Has anyone written an SOP for Convalescent Plasma? I am reluctant to do so, although we are enrolled in a study and the product is built in our LIS, because it is not approved by the FDA. Plus we have no patients with Covid and I doubt this late in the outbreak we will be using it. I guess I should reword my question - has anyone NOT written an SOP for this product? thank you.
  2. No, HCPCS is a Medicare billing code. From what I know the product is free right now so no billing codes.
  3. No, the Red Cross in our area is hosting a telephone conference about this. Is this a new build and will it be a blood bank product or a pharmacy product?

    Thank you David. I think I am going with the Drucker.
  5. Here is our procedure for dry ice. Safe Handling of Dry Ice v2.docx

    I second this question - my trusty old Clay Adams just died and was deemed unrepairable. Does anyone have a favorite since I have to purchase a brand new blood bank serofuge?
  7. I have a question - can hospitals go on lockdown and keep employees from leaving?
  8. End result: As I reread the thread I made an error - the Pathologist was the new "Medical Director" of the laboratory, we have a different person (MedTech) who is the Laboratory Director. Sorry about that. The problem resolved when the off site Pathologist resigned, and a new Pathologist who remains on site full time took the job - he will not be asking that we email photos of cells :)
  9. Hi, Could anyone please share the most recent (2016?) AABB guidelines for transfusion of RC's, platelets and FP? Or your own hospital's guidelines? We have a new Medical Director and he quickly pointed out that our criteria are out of date, apparently the platelet level has dropped to 5 instead of 10? Thank you!
  10. Hi Blood Bankers, Rumor has it that the FDA has issued Final Guidance for the Psoralen pathogen inactivated platelets. Has anyone seen a copy? Maryann
  11. I should correct my statement above and I used my own scripts for the Electronic XM validations also.
  12. I have been through two different implementations, SoftBank and Meditech (yes we downgraded). In both cases I did all of the validations myself. For Soft I wrote my own scripts, for Meditech I used my scripts for truth tables but I used Meditech scripts for everything else.
  13. If it occurs on day shift or 3-11 we will pull from other departments if needed. If it occurs on 11-7 shift usually a phone call is made to a tech who lives the closest, we do have a call tree that would activate everyone but that should not be necessary. They often call the BB Lead (me) but usually is not requested to come in, unless working that morning and coming in early.
  14. Hi Immucor users, Has anyone noticed a new lot number of CorQC Antisera is not reacting well with Screening cell #3? It appears that the Anti-c component of the mixture is not as strong. I am wondering if anyone has contacted the manufacturer for a recall/replacement? Thank you!
