Misys identified that under certain scenarios the count for tests with unacceptable results is inaccurate. This could lead to: The QA failure, "Unit status updated to inventory with unacceptable results on file", in Blood Product Testing Review (BTR) not being displayed. - This could result in a unit being released into inventory inappropriately if no active donor deferral(s) are on file (Misys Blood Donor). If the unit is inappropriately released into inventory, the QA failure, "Unacceptable Result on File", does not display in the following functions: - Blood Order Processing (BOP), Blood Product Issue (BPI), Blood Component Preparation (BCP), Blood Status Correction (BSC), or Blood Status Update (BSU).
