    hello,

    I want to ask about the verification process for the stem cell during the infusion procedure,

    who will verify the cell?
    nurse , hospitalist MD, or consultant?

    thank you

    Our policy states that 2 RNs verify fresh cells; cryopreserved cells are verified by the Cellular Therapy technician (who thaws them at the bedside) and the RN who administers.

    ​We do our verification with the lab tech who is either thawing or handing off and the bedside RN who will do the infusion.
