RRay Posted Tuesday at 04:08 PM Share Posted Tuesday at 04:08 PM Just wondering how everyone else takes care of these. Currently if a patient will need blood sent up for a procedure there is a T&S and prepare RBC order ordered and drawn at a preop appt. The clinic team calls the blood bank to see if there’s a type on file and if not, they place a confirmation order to be drawn at IV placement on day of surgery. This process had been working fine until same day started ordering confirmations on every person that had a T&S ordered. This lead to a lot of misdraws (same collect time as T&S) and unnecessary samples. The push back I’m getting now while trying to correct this, is that same day wants everyone going into surgery to be confirmed, regardless of surgery, regardless of set up order or not. I’ve never worked at a place that confirmed everyone and I’m worried about the amount of reagent we will lose to all of these unbillable confirmations. I’ll have to up my standing orders too. How do you folks manage this? List of procedures to confirm? A Surgical T&S order? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
