Blood Management & Safety

Blood Mgmt & Safety Landing Page

Crouse Hospital is proud to be one of 40 hospitals in the country that has established a Blood Utilization and Safety Program to address blood safety and optimize the use of blood products.

While blood transfusions are a life-saving intervention, for many people eliminating or reducing the need for blood products may:


• Reduce the length of hospital stays
• Decrease the potential for infections and complications
• Improve patient safety
• Improve blood availability

At Crouse, our goal is to deliver the safest patient care while making every effort to minimize blood loss in order to reduce or eliminate the need for a blood transfusion. Also, we strive to respect the needs of patients for whom blood transfusion may not be an option. This practice takes place in all phases of care: before, during and after surgery, as well as in the non-surgical setting.

 

For additional information, contact Director of Pathology Rachel Elder, MD, at 315/470-7165.
