FACTS

Read up on facts about the blood donation process.

  • Donating blood is a safe process. A sterile needle is used only once for each donor and then discarded.

  • Blood donation is a simple four-step process: registration, medical history and mini-physical, donation and refreshments.

  • The actual blood donation typically takes less than 10-12 minutes. The entire process, from the time you arrive to the time you leave, takes about an hour and 15 minutes.

  • The average adult has about 10 pints of blood in his body. Roughly 1 pint is given during a donation.

  • Every blood donor is given a mini-physical, checking the donor's temperature, blood pressure, pulse and hemoglobin to ensure it is safe for the donor to give blood.

  • All donated blood is tested for HIV, hepatitis B and C, syphilis and other infectious diseases before it can be released to hospitals.
