Some blood components, such as platelets, have very short shelf-lives.
If you receive products with a short expiry, you should:
Review your stock and ensure products with a short expiry are used first
Review blood components, especially platelets, which are already allocated to a patient. If necessary, bring back pre-allocated units with a longer expiry and instead issue units with a short expiry
If it appears you are not going to be able to use your stock of short expiry products, contact your nearest large hospital transfusion laboratory and ask if they can use them. You will need to confirm their packing requirements and arrange transport if required.
