Improving Patient Safety with FinalCheck – Reducing Transfusion Errors
15 May 2012
This case study follows the experience of Boulder Community Hospital (BCH) as they upgraded their existing mechanical transfusion barrier system, for the Final-Check™ Recipient Safety System. The installation of a mechanical barrier has had a positive impact in addressing both wrong-blood-in-tube (WBIT) and “wrong patient – wrong room” potential mistransfusions. The old system was difficult to manage and so the new Typenex system was chosen to replace it. Read more to discover the impact of the project on blood bank, physicians and nursing staff.
