SWASTHYA KALYAN BLOOD BANK FOR PATIENTS

REQUESTING FOR BLOOD

We, at Swasthya Kalyan Blood Bank, understand that 'Making safe blood available on time' can save a life!. For many years now, we have been serving people and have built up our reputation for our excellence in Blood services. To make a request for blood, all you need to do is to contact us. Since human blood is categorized as a 'Drug' under Drugs and Cosmetics Act. So the request for blood must come through a doctor. Given below are the simple steps to request for Blood from our bank.

Step1: Filling up the form

You can also get the form from the Reception of our Blood Bank. We request you to kindly go through the instructions given in the form carefully, before filling it up. The form needs to be personally submitted at the reception of the Blood Bank.

Step 2: Recruiting a Replacement Donor

Survey shows that every minute, every day of the year, someone needs blood! Our aim is to keep providing the life-saving potion- "Blood" to the needy souls. But we also need to ensure that our Blood bank does not run dry! So we request the physicians to recruit a Non-remunerated Voluntary replacement Blood Donor. This donor could be either family or friend of the Recipient. It is the duty of the physician to take complete medical history of the person to ensure his suitability as a donor.

Step 3: Sending Patient's blood sample

The physician must send 5 ml of blood sample of the patient along with the form. The blood sample should be obtained in a stopper plain vial containing anticoagulant. It must bear a label carrying the following details:

dot Patient's full name
dot IIdentification number
dot Name of hospital
dot Ward/bed number
dot Date and time
dot Phlebotomist's signature/ initials

When recipient's (patient's) blood sample is received in our Blood Bank laboratory, our qualified staff confirms, if the information on the label and on the transfusion request form are identical. In case of any discrepancy or doubt a new sample will have to be submitted. The physician must also send a brief clinical note emphasizing the importance and urgency of blood transfusion clearly.

Step 4: Submitting the Form

To submit the form, the replacement donor must come personally to the Blood Bank. The form and the Patient's Blood sample should be submitted at our reception area along with the donor card, if present.
While donated blood is free, there are significant costs associated with collecting, testing, preparing components, storing and shipping blood, recruiting and educating donors and quality assurance. As a result, processing fees are charged to recover costs. So you will also be required to pay the service charges.
