In-service Hospital Education

§482.45(a)(5) Ensure that the hospital works cooperatively with the designated OPO, tissue bank and eye bank in educating staff on donation issues. Training should be conducted with new employees annually, whenever there are policy/procedure changes, or when problems are determined through the hospital’s QAPI program.
Those hospital staff who may have to contact or work with the OPO, tissue bank and eye bank staff must have appropriate training on donation issues including their duties and roles.
