Hemolyzed samples delay diagnoses and treatment, cause interdepartmental friction, compromise productivity, and consume valuable facility resources. This presentation discusses the preanalytical causes of sample hemolysis, details how laboratories can prevent its occurrence in the emergency department and throughout the facility, provides benchmarks for comparison with other facilities, and presents effective strategies managers can implement to reduce sample rejection due to hemolysis facility-wide. Includes access to CE questions for inhouse use. This video qualifies viewers to obtain 1 unit of P.A.C.E. continuing education credit. (Additional fee applies.)
