Abstract

Better education around the recognition of transfusion-associated adverse events is warranted. It is unknown if checklist use improves recognition by student nurses. This study examined whether using a checklist could improve transfusion-associated adverse event recognition behaviors. There was an increased frequency of transfusion-associated adverse event management behaviors in the checklist group, but overall recognition was no greater than other groups. A transfusion-associated adverse event checklist may increase patient safety by promoting identification behaviors.
