Case Study B5 - Case Discussion - Answer (Question 6)

In this case were best practices followed?

The attending physician was notified that the patient had an unexpected antibody (or antibodies) present but that crossmatch- compatible blood was available if needed.

The physician should have been made aware of the risks before deciding to transfuse, by consulting with the physician responsible for the transfusion service.
