Bearing in mind that what with one thing and
another I’d not done a BTLP-TACT exercise for nearly a month I thought I’d
better get busy.
Despite an incredibly slow PC, the software presented me with two cases:
42890 – an eighty year old chap going for cholecystectomy requiring Group & Save. But having an inadequately labelled blood sample (no NHS number) I rejected that one.
83689 - a fifty year old chap requiring Group
& Save as a prerequisite for a bladder tumour resection.
He typed as O Rh(D) Pos with a negative antibody screen
I got the green light. I would have gone on and done more, but what with the PC running so slowly I decided to quit whilst I was ahead.
