  Past Q-PROBES Studies - 2002

 

Updated January 12, 2010

02-QP15 Type and Screen Completion for Scheduled Surgical Procedures
Objective: Ideally, patient blood samples for intended transfusions are collected early enough to allow for a complete blood type and screen (T & S) for non-ABO RBC antibodies. Early identification allows for adequate blood product inventory prior to the time of need, which is increasingly important as blood product availability becomes a greater issue. This monitor assists institutions with QI plans such as those that are required for accreditation in the CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program and the AABB's standards for blood bank and transfusion services.

02-QP16 Routine Outpatient Test Turnaround Time
Objective: As laboratories compete for customers, satisfaction with outpatient laboratory services is becoming increasingly important. Efficient turnaround time of routine outpatient tests can improve patient care and customer satisfaction. Additionally, a laboratory's ability to monitor outpatient turnaround time can prove to be important to managed care organizations.
