  1. My hospital's transfusion committee is re-evaluating who's responsibility it is to provide informed consent. Currently our procedure states it's the physician's responsibility to explain the risks, benefits and alternative treatments of transfusion. After discussion with several physicians it was discovered that this hardly ever happens. We are considering shifting this responsibility to the nurses as they are getting the signature from the patient. Is there any specific rule/regulatory mandate that the physician has to be the one to provide this explanation?
  2. For those of you who are NOT in an area where mosquito populations can carry the Zika virus.......I just got an email from our blood supplier regarding donor testing for Zika. In nine selected tests investigational testing will begin for the virus. The units screened will be labeled as such. We are not one of the states listed for donor testing for Zika, however we have, in the past, received products collected in a couple of those states. People also travel and they forget they have traveled or don't think it matters and don't self-defer for all kinds of other things - that's why we get 'look backs' and recalls'. In the letter is the following exactly quoted statement "With the distribution of labeled product, the FDA has also recommended that an approriate acknowledgement or consent be obtained prior to transfusion of high-risk recipients (e.g., a fetus in utero or pregnant woman)." Here's the question. Have any of you altered your informed consent for Zika? Is anyone thinking about altering your informed consent for Zika?
