Abstract


Turnaround Time (TAT) is the time between the blood request form arriving at the blood bank and when it is issued by the blood
bank. Blood Bank RSWS standard on the TAT of Stat blood service is <45 minutes and is regularly <60 minutes. The aim of this research
was to know the TAT of blood services at the Blood Bank of the Dr Wahidin Sudirohusodo Hospital, Makassar. The research was carried
out by cross sectional study between August until November 2013. The data were divided into two (2) categories, which were Stat and
regular blood service. The blood service was divided into three (3) service times, morning (08:00–14:00), afternoon (14:00–21:00) and
evening (21:00–08:00). The statistical method used was Independent Samples T Test. There were 1.366 blood services consisting of 831
Stat blood service with average TAT about 37.15 minutes (82.9% complied to standard) and 535 regular blood service with average
TAT about 45.73 minutes (96.1% complied to standard). There were significant differences between morning and afternoon (p=0.000)
and between afternoon and evening Stat TAT (p=0.003), but there was no significant difference between morning and evening Stat
TAT (p=0.196). No significant difference was found in regular TAT between the morning and afternoon session (p=0.915), as well as
noon and evening (p=0.490); and morning and evening session (p=0.428). The TAT blood service at the Dr. Wahidin Sudirohusodo
Hospital Blood Bank which was carried out by gel method should shorten the waiting time of Stat and regular blood service, but not up
to 100% yet. Based on this study, the researchers recommended to do some regulation changes in the blood service system especially
for the morning and evening Stat sessions.
