Our Hospital Partners
Our hospital partnerships are unique and professional relationships between each hospital and Birth Tissue Recovery. We build careful, long term relationships that allow both the hospital and BTR to build an acquisition program designed to seamlessly integrate into each hospitals’ unique work flow.
An Innovative Patient Experience
Purpose: To encourage an understanding of the value of birth tissue donation between hospital staff and the public.
Process: Establish and maintain documented procedures for human tissue recovery based upon consensus methods for tissue acquisition. Methods include industry standards, such as those promulgated by the American Association of Tissue (AATB), or mandated by applicable regulation and are cited in the procedures, or by the customer.
Consent for placenta donation shall provide disclosure of the donation process and actions required from the donor to effect tissue acquisition. Consent shall be obtained without coercion, and without payment to the donor.
BTR shall employ qualified personnel who are trained to perform the tasks that support BTR’s objectives. Personnel obtaining consent or conducting tissue acquisition shall demonstrate proficiency that they are properly trained and this shall be documented.
Tissue handling and management procedures shall maintain integrity of both the tissue and the documentation necessary to support its safety and evaluation for use.
Records pertaining to the donor, their medical and social history, identifying information, test results, and other related documents or information shall be handled, reviewed, archived, and, whenever necessary, shared, as confidential and protected. Access to records shall be controlled and available only to authorized personnel. Archived records shall be secured and maintained in such a manner that facilitates retrieving them later. Archival retention periods are stated in BTR’s procedures.
Sally, Placenta Donation Coordinator
“We are very careful at working around the nurses because their time with the patient is very critical. We are cognizant of their workplace and also with the patients when they are bonding with the baby.”
Kurt, President & CEO, BTR
“We champion the benefits of tissue donation by enhancing the patient experience, not interfering with the hospital workflow, and providing the safest and highest quality tissue for allograft.”
