No I don’t think anyone ever should get preferential service based on anything but how sick you are and if you get treated sooner it is better. Not because you are a good person, rich, poor, religious or atheist. None of this should matter. The incentive to donate is an incentive to lie about your health and that puts weak patients needing blood at risk. Fresh Donuts and coffee was all the Where is Jackie Walorski , President Joe Biden Confused T-Shirt it is in the first place but incentive (well, plus they came to our hospital and made it easy to donate) I needed. It takes 3 days of work to make sure that blood is safe to use. That’s a whole lot of lab tests. It takes a lot of freezing to maintain FFP (Fresh Frozen Plasma) at -120 F. Lab Techs must be paid to keep records and maintain the inventory. There are fixed costs at the Red Cross Facility (Gas, Heat, Donuts, light, water) … and there are vehicles to maintain. … AND YOUR BLOOD DRAW HASN’T EVEN GONE TO A HOSPITAL YET.

At the Where is Jackie Walorski , President Joe Biden Confused T-Shirt it is in the first place but hospital, a Specialist has to Order, Bring into inventory, Crossmatch the blood for a patient, Screen the patient and inspect the unit before releasing the blood to a nurse. The Nurse rechecks the blood with another Nurse and the patients wristband before your blood finally reaches someone where it can do some good. What I am saying is there are a lot of people unseen that make it possible for you to receive that unit of blood … and that ain’t cheap. You can write incentives till you are blue in the face. The ultimate decision is in the actual donor themselves to be responsible and do the right thing. People are loaded with excuses. I know. I worked blood bank and transfusion services and donated 5.5 gallons of my own blood till I got Hep C. If I had not gotten the Hep C I would still have donated until I got the pacemaker 18 months ago at 71 years of age.
