Blood Supply Chain
Blood transfusion is an area of some risk - inaccurate identification
can lead to potentially fatal errors. Blood bags are routinely bar
coded with their type, but when bags are issued from the blood bank,
an additional barcoded label identifying the patient is attached. The
label is then scanned along with the patient’s bar-coded wristband
before the blood is administered, providing an automatic compatibility
safety check in line with the EU Directive 2002/98/EC.
