Important steps we have seen clinical leadership take to manage anemia have included:
Communication between transfusion services and blood supplier is also critical. We suggest the hospital appoint a “transfusion services liaison” who would manage the relationship with the contracted blood supplier and coordinate hospital communication on the availability and timing of blood product delivery. The teams should establish streamlined mechanisms of information exchange (electronic) between blood center collections/distribution and hospital transfusion services/blood bank on a daily basis (pre-delivery) and in preparation for following days blood collections and distribution of blood products. This communication will ensure that all decisions related to patient prioritization (e.g. adapted admission HgB and discharge criteria, triage methods for red cells, prevention and control measures) are communicated to all relevant staff and stakeholders based on blood supply availability and ensure the availability of reliable and sustainable emergency blood product those who are in the most critical need.
