We use a continuing consent for blood product adminstration before transfusion and it remains in effect unless revoked. Once the patient turns 18 years old we reconsent. We verify that a consent is present before each transfusion.
Continuing consent – Certain procedures or treatments may need to be repeated on numerous occasions during the course of treatment, and for those procedures and treatments, continuing consent (previously referred to as “durable consent”) may be obtained. Continuing consent shall remain in effect until specifically canceled or restricted by the patient or the patient’s legal representative, or until the patient’s condition or circumstances have changed so as to redefine the risks and benefits.
