Implementation date

June 23, 2021

At-a-glance statement

To align with the common administration of Heparin in donors, the OPO community has asked to modify system requirements.  Previously, when “yes” was selected for Heparin on the Meds/Fluids tab of DonorNet®, OPOs were required to enter a begin date, begin time, end date, end time, and units to save the entry.  As of June 23, when “yes” is selected for Heparin, an end date and end time are no longer required. Selecting “yes” to Heparin will still require a begin date, begin time, and units.

What you need to do 

You no longer need enter the end date or end time for the Heparin dosage in DonorNet.  You can enter end date and end time, if applicable.

Additional details

The Heparin field on the Deceased Donor Registration form will not have any changes.
