PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center
Measure: Before starting a blood or blood product transfusion, the patient is matched to the blood or blood product using a two person verification process that uses at least two unique patient identifiers.

Time Period Ending:  3/31/2013

What We Are Doing:

PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center practices two patient identifiers, demonstrated not only by the caregiver(s) assisting with the blood administration but by the laboratory personnel as well.  This national patient safety goal is measured quarterly through audit, documentation and observation. Questions may be routed to:  Barbara Bigelow, VP Quality at 907-821-1990.
