Patient Safety in the Clinical Lab

When an event – defined as a deviation from an approved policy, process or procedure, a complaint, or a transfusion reaction – occurs in the laboratory it needs to be documented by the person who observes it. Identifying and tracking errors is a critical component to continuously ensure compliance, patient safety and to improve policies, procedures and processes.
