Could anyone help me out with this AABB standard 5.19.7 for Transfusion Associated Circulatory overload (TACO)

BB shall have a policy for responding to request for products for patients identified by the ordering physician or other authorized health professional as being increased risk for TACO.


I'm drawing a blank as to what a BB policy would need to say for that

We have in our Patient Blood Management and Nursing Transfusion policy that we encourage single unit transfusions, with re-evaluation after the first to prevent TACO.  Also mentioned in our Transfusion Reaction policy (that is a combined BB/Nursing policy) about TACO and how to prevent and react to it.
