Quality:  Quality Laboratories can only produce quality results on quality samples And on quality requests Rubbish In Rubbish Out Ideal sample mimics the in vivo state Requesting:  Requesting Requested on PAS = electronic return Requested manually = NO electronic return Electronic/ manual mixed requesting = break in electronic record Results:  Results Telephoned results are the most unsafe method Electronic are safest and quickest Hardcopy reports must be filed as per instructions Blood collection:  Blood collection Ask patients to identify themselves When blood taken write all relevant details on collection tubes immediately Sample acceptance:  Sample acceptance Patient safety is of the utmost importance Samples and requests MUST allow clear identification the patient Samples identified incorrectly will NOT be processed Sample acceptance:  Sample acceptance The sample MUST include patient’s:- Surname Forename Date of Birth or Hospital Number or NHS number Histology specimens MUST include Hospital number Other information:  Other information SHOULD include Ward Date of collection Time of collection e.g. Cortisol Sample acceptance:  Sample acceptance Request form MUST contain patient’s:- Surname Forename Date of Birth and/ or Hospital or NHS number Ward or clinic Tests requested Samples for Blood Transfusion:  Samples for Blood Transfusion MANDATORY identification requirements As previous plus signature and printed name of requestor on form Signature of person collecting the blood on the sample tube(s) and on request form Date of request and of sample See Blood Transfusion Policy Slide21:  Venous blood sampling Syringe Hybrid Evacuated Blood collection:  Blood collection Use the blood collection system in use Advantages over needle & syringe Higher quality sample Minimises clotting mechanism Produces correct blood to anticoagulant ratio when properly filled Easier Quicker Sampling problems - blood:  Sampling problems - blood Inappropriate site – drip arm, mastectomy, burns etc Timing Incorrect use of tourniquet Wrong container Incorrect order of draw Transportation Urine collection:  Urine collection 24 hour sample must include all urine passed in this period If less than 24h, inform the lab Mid stream sample – self explanatory Early morning sample – often best Correct container type Urine samples:  Urine samples Incorrect timing Inappropriate for test required Sterility Volume Other considerations:  Other considerations Swabs for culture may need specific transport media e.g. Chlamydia Blood cultures – special bottles & technique for taking the blood Tissue for Histology – fixative * Extreme care needed when using formalin
