I'm a agency nurse .. however most of the hosptials i have been to have the same policy.

Once before starting transfusion.

every 15 min for the first hour.. then every 30 min for a hour then hourly till tranfusion is finished.

And of course more often if needed.

Ours is vs before transfusion, then u stay in the room to do v.s q 5 minutes x 3, then at end of transfusion.

Specializes in NICU, PICU, educator.

Our hospital policy is....at the start, at 15 minutes then the end. We will do them more often if the patient is unstable.
