Give the gift of life, donate blood!
This blood drive will take place Monday, April 16 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Lake Regional Hospital's third floor conference rooms.
Before the Donation:
Donors complete a donor registration form each time they give blood. A confidential screening with a CBCO professional includes a mini physical. Your blood pressure, pulse, temperature and hemoglobin (iron level) are checked.
You will be asked to lie back and relax on a donor bed. The arm from which you donate is cleansed with antiseptic, and a sterile, single use needle is inserted to begin the blood donation. During the donation process, you will give about one pint of blood.
After the Donation:
Following your donation, you will receive refreshments to help replace the fluids lost during the donation process. Donors also receive a complimentary cholesterol screening. Results are available approximately three to five days after your donation. For more information, call 573-348-8222.
