Hello everyone,

TRM.41350 states that if a patient has special transfusion requirements they must appear on the transfusion tag.

Our facilities utilize the transfusion requirement section in various ways and many of our transfusion requirements are not associated with an attribute (for example, transfuse with group O RBC, transfusion with group AB plasma).

How are you planning to achieve compliance with this CAP requirement?  Will you print all active transfusion requirements on the tag or will you limit the printing to requirements associated with an attribute?

Thank you in advance for your insight!

Respectfully yours,

Maureen Slackway, MS, MT(ASCP), CPHIMS, CQA

      Hello All,
      Now that Cerner has migrated from major release upgrades to incremental upgrades, how are you managing the Blood Bank validation effort?
      We have not yet received any guidance from Cerner and at this point we feel that we will need to make the determination to validate on our own.
      How are you some of you handling this?
      Thank you!
      Respectfully yours,

      Per the CAP requirement, highlighted items are added. We are using very small label with SOFTBANK which has minimum requirement. (first four items)
      How is everyone complying with below requirement.
      1) Are you changing your label size?   Thanks

      Our hospital is in the process of evaluating new software for the entire institution. We have looked at Cerner, Epic and McKesson. We (blood bank/TS) currently have SafeTrace (HBB) and personally, I dislike it greatly. But it has been a very long time since I have worked with anything else.
      Can folks give me some pros and cons of Cerner and Epic? I heard that Epic does not have a BB/TS module so if our administration chooses them, we will be stuck with SafeTrace. 
      SafeTrace has horrible reporting and the emergency release for an unknown patient doesn't work very well. So if we get Epic, is there any chance that I could get some better statistics, even though we would still have the same BB/TS system?
      Any advice would be most appreciated.
