Meditech without a Blood Bank module

Recommended Posts

We do not use Meditech, but our ordering facilities use Meditech-without a Blood Bank module, 

My IT department is struggling with an issue.  When an order for 2 units of RBC's is placed it creates 2 separate orders/specimens. 

We need to be able to have multiple products "added onto" the same specimen.  Does any one have any advice I can share with my IT department on how to manage this problem? 

Thanks in advance

Teresa

Is the problem that they can't add a PC onto a submitted type and screen? Or is it when they initially order a type and screen + 2 packed cells it makes 2 requisitions? 

We have packed cells as an option for the clinician when making a requisition for a type/screen, if they want 2 packed cells when ordering they can simply change it the count to 2. This works similar to adding onto any chemistry test in a requisition except there's a count that we can edit.

Once the order is placed though, only the blood bank has the option to add/remove units. The floor can ask for more units via addons which works similarly to addons for the chemistry module where we get a printout and manually change the unit count to whatever is requested.

Both on the original order and add on.  Curious are you able to have Irradiated and CMVN requests print on your add on orders that print?

Our blood bank addon printouts are formatted a bit differently than those for the rest of the core lab. There is a text entry prompt for additional requirements such as Irradiated and CMV negative. This defaults as NONE.
