Transfusion Administration - Identification Related to Blood Matching

Does NPSG.01.03.01 EP1 apply to the receipt of blood or blood products from the blood bank, or only to the transfusion itself?

Any examples are for illustrative purposes only
While optimal identification is encouraged at all stages of the blood matching process, this goal applies only to the transfusion process itself.
