The team at Blood Drive Safety works hard to bring our readers relevant, timely and useful blood donation information, as well as industry updates as they happen. We want to keep you informed about the best ways you can stay safe before, during and after the blood donation procedure. Why? For both the donor and the recipient, safe blood donation is literally a matter of life and death.
In the United States alone, someone is in need of blood every two seconds. So, the need for donors cannot be overstated. But, if the blood was donated under inadequate controls, both the donor and the recipient could be exposed to disease and illness.
On our site you’ll discover everything you need to know about the blood donation process, including information about what to expect during the procedure, and tips on how to care for yourself before and after. Blood Drive Safety wants to be with you every step of the way, helping ensure that your blood donation experience is as safe and rewarding as possible.
Your Donation is Crucial
According to the American Red Cross, 41,000 blood donations are needed every day in the United States, so the long term goal is to have as many volunteers donate as often as they can (every 56 days, on average). The more rewarding, safe and comfortable your donation experience, and the more knowledgeable you are about the process, the more likely it is that you will donate again.
That’s one of the reasons why the team at Blood Drive Safety works hard to bring you timely and crucial information from our own staff of researchers and experts, but also from other trusted sources, such the American Red Cross. We are also the first to bring you the latest news and research in the world of blood donation safety from entities like the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as leading global pioneers in medical research, such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The Blood Drive Safety team understands that you don’t have the time to conduct the research yourself that is necessary to make an educated decision about the ins and outs of donating blood. We also understand that you need easily accessible, localized information. So we’ve gathered all of the data in one place – Blood Drive Safety.
