Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: We are one of the first in our state to acquire the blood track system for monitoring and dispensing blood units. Using the innovative process of remote allocation, this cutting edge system automatically assigns, dispenses, and labels units in the OR. It includes a nine-drawer smart refrigerator that contains various blood types. It is easy to use; similar to a vending machine. The process requires scanning of the nurses barcoded identification and using the touch-screen for password entry. The correct drawer is then unlocked and the nurse accesses the correct unit. We became super users and trained OR nursing staff in six weeks. This system works effectively for our patients safety. The blood is tracked by the blood bank and monitored for alerts. Blood can be retrieved in a short amount of time and is checked to ensure that units are not left out longer than 30 minutes as regulated by our state law. The use of remote allocation reduces the total blood inventory and the number of times it is handled, thereby reducing the risk of errors. The system allows us to store emergency blood to be accessed on demand. This technology improved patient care by increasing safety and product efficiency.
