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.
