Hello, I am currently working in a level 2 trauma center. We are struggling with routine stocking responsibilities of the department and the critical rooms. We do not have a position for a stocking person. To date we have had the night shift staff responsible for primary stocking, with the understanding that all shifts are to assist. This has not been successful.  Does anyone have ideas for a process to share the responsibility and accountability of the tedious but essential task of stocking.  thanks in advance for your help Vicki D

We would to add a blood refrigerator in the trauma bay and would like input from those who have done this. My questions are:  Has it helped in your resuscitations? MTPs? Any Lessons Learned in implementing this? How much and what products do you keep there? Thanks for your help. Joseph Blansfield, MS, NP, TCRN Boston Medical Center
