Join Leann Polson, BS, MHA, MT(ASCP), Blood Bank Operations Supervisor at Children’s Hospital Colorado, as she discusses how they implemented several processes to enhance exception management to maximize efficient use of their blood supply during this past year. She will also walk through processes they put in place around platelet sampling, antigen typing, and TRALI mitigation. You will learn what the new processes are, how they built them, and some of their results.
Children’s Hospital Colorado, a private, nonprofit pediatric healthcare network, and the only dedicated pediatric Level 1 trauma center in its seven-state region, collects 10,000 units of blood each year. Blood donations never seem to keep up with demand, but the pandemic created new challenges in keeping up the blood supply.
