We are working on a derivative tag for RhIG from our new blood bank information system (SafeTrace Tx). So my question for everyone...Does your label for RhIG include the patient specimen expiration date/time?

Blood Bank does not dispense RHIG.  We report the number of vials of RHIG as part of the RHIG work-up based on the fetal screen or stain result.  Pharmacy supplies RHIG based on our result.

The forms that come with the product have a spot for the patient's test date.  Other than that there is nothing specific about the specimen expiration, which is probably because it's not relevant to simple Rh Ig administration.

We elected to use the same form as used for blood transfusion. It is preprinted with some RhIg specific text.  Our Meditech system is configured to print the RhIg syringe expiration date.

      There's a minor disagreement about the extent of labeling required for saline bottles. How do you label your saline bottles at your facility? Thanks in advance!
