This video outlines critical key steps for completing pre-administration bedside checks of blood components.

The video can be played in full or paused at particular points to support training and knowledge of this final step.  The video supports the British Society of Haematology (BSH, 2017) guideline for the administration of blood components, the National Blood Transfusion Committee (NBTC, 2016) National Standards for the Clinical Transfusion Process and the Central Alerting System (CAS) Alert Safe Transfusion Practice – use a bedside checklist, (Department for Health, 2017).

The video was produced through collaboration between the UK haemovigilance scheme, Serious Hazards of Transfusion (SHOT) and the NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) Patient Blood Management (PBM) Team with funding from Health Education England.
