Laboratory team members play key roles in organizations as contributing members of multidisciplinary teams. Organizations that have active patient blood management programs should consider Patient Blood Management Certification, which would involve elevating patient care and safety and utilize key laboratory professionals to help prepare for and successfully achieve certification.
Patient Blood Management Certification
Patient Blood Management Certification is a voluntary program available from The Joint Commission and AABB. Based on the AABB Standards for a Patient Blood Management Program, certification is available to hospitals and critical access hospitals that are accredited by The Joint Commission.
