Match Run Views in DonorNet

Printable PDF

Summary
OPTN Policy states, "The transplant program must transplant all accepted, deceased donor organs into the originally designated recipient or release the deceased donor organs back to and notify the host OPO or the OPTN Contractor for further distribution." When transplant center staff view the match run, they may not realize that their center does not have the next potential transplant recipient on the match run list. This may lead to unintentionally skipping other potential transplant recipients. The transplant center may erroneously transplant the organ and not release it to the appropriate OPO as required.

This PDF explains how to view the entire match run to ensure that potential transplant recipients are not skipped and that the allocation sequence is followed.

Intended Audience

  • Transplant Coordinators
  • Transplant Nurses
  • Quality Assurance Personnel
  • Compliance Personnel

Following Recipients of Increased Risk Organs

Recording
Approximately 25 minutes

Summary
In July 2013, the U.S. Public Health Service (PHS) published new guidelines for reducing human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), and hepatitis C virus (HCV) transmission during organ transplantion. Soon after the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) implemented policy requiring transplant programs to have a protocol that offers increased risk organ recipients testing for HIV, HBV, and HCV post-transplant. Recent data shows that the number of donors classified as PHS increased risk have increased to greater than one in four nationally. This increase highlights an opportunity to enhance patient safety by sharing effective practices in developing and implementing protocols to provide follow-up testing to these receipients.

Intended Audience

  • Transplant Administrators
  • Transplant Physicians
  • Transplant Surgeons
  • Quality Staff
