  • 1.  Consent for Rhogam

    Posted 05-10-2019 09:07
    Does New York State require a consent from the patient to administer Rhogam?  I have looked at Joint Commission and DOH and have not been able to find that regulation, but when we have spoken with other facilities within 100 miles of us, the majority of facilities are getting a consent.  The line seems to be whether this is considered a blood product or a medication.  Thanks in advance!
