Sample Validation Change Protocol: Donor Hgb Levels

Changes to donor criteria can occur at any time.  This example is the change in donor criteria for males to 13.0 g/dl based on AABB Bulletin #16-05.

I made a validation protocol, which was subsequently performed by a Donor Center Medinfo Super-User.   The data was then sent to me for review and then accepted.

Note that females were included in the testing for regression purposes.  Females were only permitted to donate RBCs—all other components were discarded in production. Contraindication information appears in RED.
