Emergent Blood Product Administration Attestation

Complex title! New tips and demos cover some essential knowledge (and Connect Care skills) that all who order unmatched blood products can benefit from.

Emergency blood product administration bears extraordinary risk. The related workflow includes:
  • a phone call to the blood bank to initiate product preparation;
  • a "Transfuse Emergent Blood Product" order entered by the provider;
  • an attestation note completed by the ordering provider. 
These actions allow the work of lab and nursing staff to proceed. The attestation confirms that the use of un-crossmatched blood is clinically necessary for patient care.
