I know it is not nursing, but did you catch the story about the Mass state trooper who was disciplined and forced to change his documentation of an arrest of a judge's daughter? he is suing the state police...

In the last column where final vital signs are written, I wrote verbatim "patient expired before transfusion completed please see RN documentation" the form was otherwise complete.

Well then these people are just getting dumb with this issue at this point. Ugh.

Talk with your director and/or the lab manager.

Do you remember what volume the patient actually received? Maybe their just looking to see 100mls or whatever, our bags tend to run 300 to 340mls, but I kind of wonder if they're trying to figure out how to charge it? I feel bad that they're putting you through this OP, seems like a perfect example of computers dictating care.
