Blood Administration (Nursing)

by Samantha Rhea, MSN, RN

Administering blood to a patient is a unique treatment modality, and proper administration is crucial to achieve positive patient outcomes. It’s a procedure that deserves respect because it is serious business.

In many clinical settings, a registered nurse is the only professional trained and allowed to administer blood. Improper safety checks, lack of sanitation and hygiene, and improper equipment use can lead to adverse events.

This course will cover the important steps and considerations that you’ll need to take pre-administration, intra-administration, and post-administration in order to ensure patient safety and a successful transfusion.
