An audit of the quality control system is part of an ongoing improvement process. The hospital-based facilities for the transfusion services not involved in collecting and processing donor blood but issuing blood cell products are expected to achieve quality standards. A quality control audit is considered an essential tool to assess and improve deficiencies or deviations for greater effectiveness. A global approach to transfusion processes added to a strict follow-up by all concerned are necessary for the proper management of transfusion practices and the risks involved. Its function is to achieve a certain quality of health, thus requiring confidence and respect. The end result is to ensure blood transfusion safety.
