  3. We have just switched to Safetrace TX and I am struggling to figure out what reports are best for tracking QA! Any help/guidance is greatly appreciated! Thanks! M
  4. We just brought on a Lab Quality Manager in our Hospital. She wants us to report to her some monthly quality monitors that'll look nice in a graph. I do a lot of monitors monthly ( CT ratio's, product wastage, etc) but she didn't really think any of those applied to "Quality". Can I get any feedback from you guys about some good Quality topics to report monthly. Thanks!
  5. Our facility is updating our floor model centrifuge which will product volume reduced platelets (Apheresis Platelet which is Plasma Reduced). I'm interested if anyone has validated this process in their facility, and if so...what product parameters did you use to ensure volume reduction yielded viable platelets? We will be performing IQ/OQ of the centrifuge but in planning for the PQ of the product, we are initially considering: - volume of product pre/post - platelet count in pre/post (or lack of platelet/reduction of platelets in the 'removed' portion...) - visual inspection of vol reduced platelet (i.e., the swirling of platelets) If you've recently done it, know of any good references or can share any good (or bad!) experiences, please do! I imagine it would be similar if you've recently validated washing platelets, too... Thanks - and happy 4th!
  6. Hello, What/where are the requirements for the DIN label on a blood bag? I have been told there is a specific size specified, but I am unable to find it. I have looked through the iccbaa docs searching for a required size. I know that it needs to be eye readable and scannable. (I am not talking base label, but rather DIN that the donor area applies). I am asking as we at times have a smaller label placed on the donor collection bag (30mm vs 50mm) in the donor area and I have seen these discarded at times. To me seems a bit wasteful especially if it is still eye readable and scannable, but if a requirement is there to follow, I will understand. Just want to know where the requirement is. And if there isn't one, I want our QA department to relax a bit
  7. Questions about assigning roles and responsibilities Currently in our institution we have management assigned the role of performing computer overrides. The management is anyone from a lead, technical specialist, quality specialist, assistant supervisor and supervisor. These roles really have no required qualifications for "years" of work. Only that they are medical technologists. There have recently been some rumblings about the role of management in performing computer overrides. Are they really the right people to perform this overriding when they may in fact, not understand the process or the actual factor they may be overriding. The technologist may be able to communicate that with the management person or perhaps they may not. While historically management has "always had this role" of overriding...are they really the right people to perform this? How do you determine who has the ability to perform an override in your institution. Is it based on a competency test? Years of service? Role based only? Comments? Thanks for reading!
