Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Transplants are procedures that transfer living tissue or organs from one area of the body to another area of the same body, or from a donor to a recipient, for the purpose of maintaining functional integrity of tissue or organs in the recipient. About 81 people receive an organ transplant every day in the US. Last year, more than 28,000 patients began new lives thanks to an organ transplant. The University of Maryland Division of Transplantation is one of the nation's largest transplant programs, with an established national reputation for innovation and technical/surgical excellence. As such, the operating room (OR) RNs had documentation issues in verifying documents and obtaining signatures from health care providers involved in the organ transplants performed at this facility. We developed a formal and practical ABO verification policy and procedure. Our primary goal was to ensure that proper safeguards are in place to prevent the transplantation of organs with an incompatible blood type recipient. A universal solid organ verification process was developed to crosscheck all information from donor to implantation into recipient. Using this tool, we identified the need for overall improvement in organ identification, and not just with ABO. By sharing our experience in developing an ABO policy and procedure for solid organ transplantation, other centers may develop a formal and practical ABO verification policy and procedure.
