Welcome to the Show
Good day and welcome to this week’s episode of the Nursing Show podcast for nurses, by nurses. I’m your host Jamie Davis and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for checking out the show this week. This week on the show we have a look at how nurses administer blood products and whether they are doing it using responsible blood management systems. Does your facility have a set of guidelines outlining your blood management system for your patients? We’ll have that and more later in this episode after the news.

Tip of the Week: Blood Product Management
Blood management systems help us manage all the patients in our facilities more responsibly. I have nurse Joe Thomas on the show today from Accumen.com to talk with me about things nurses need to keep in mind regarding blood product administration. Joe is a nurse with a critical care nursing background as well as an extensive background in large-scale patient safety and cost saving performance improvement projects organizational change management.
Over the past 13 years, his focus has been predominantly in the area of Blood Management and Transfusion Safety program development requiring expertise in leadership and organizational change management. Check out this special segment with Joe.
