LMP Q&A BUG: Selene Fernando

LMP QA BUG

 

This week, Transfusion Medicine laboratory technologist, Selene Fernando was ‘infected’ by the LMP Q&A BUG. The nomination came from laboratory director, Tom Clancy, whose photo Q&A you can see: HERE

As a lab technologist in Transfusion Medicine, Selene is responsible for testing patient blood samples and determining compatibility for transfusions. All blood used in transfusions is attained from Canadian Blood Services and then is securely stored in the blood bank laboratory. Selene and the entire blood bank team then supply blood products throughout UHN hospitals and ensure the proper blood is received by the proper patient. Different types of blood products or derivatives have specific standards for staying effective and usable, for example fresh standard blood is good for around 42 days, where as platelets are only good for five days and must be lightly agitated (shaked) to stay usable. Selene and everyone else in the blood bank play a key role in all patient transfusions and are an essential piece to UHN hospitals.
