Condition of participation: Organ recovery and receipt.
Transplant centers must have written protocols for validation of donor-recipient blood type and other vital data for the deceased organ recovery, organ receipt, and living donor organ transplantation processes. The transplanting surgeon at the transplant center is responsible for ensuring the medical suitability of donor organs for transplantation into the intended recipient.
(a) Standard: Organ recovery. When the identity of an intended transplant recipient is known and the transplant center sends a team to recover the organ(s), the transplant center's recovery team must review and compare the donor data with the recipient blood type and other vital data before organ recovery takes place.
(b) Standard: Organ receipt. After an organ arrives at a transplant center, prior to transplantation, the transplanting surgeon and another licensed health care professional must verify that the donor's blood type and other vital data are compatible with transplantation of the intended recipient
(c) Standard: Living donor transplantation. If a center performs living donor transplants, the transplanting surgeon and another licensed health care professional at the center must verify that the living donor's blood type and other vital data are compatible with transplantation of the intended recipient immediately before the removal of the donor organ(s) and, if applicable, prior to the removal of the recipient's organ(s).
