Case Study B4 - Case Discussion - Answer (Question 4)

Do most transfusion-related human errors occur inside or outside the transfusion service and what are the implications?

Most transfusion-related human errors occur outside the transfusion service, which suggests that hospital-wide efforts at prevention are required.

For an example of a hospital-wide education program, see this paper:
