| Donating Blood Just Got Complicated
I donate blood regularly and religiously. It makes me feel good, and I
love the snacks they give you after you donate blood.
But I had to cancel my next scheduled donation because they said they
have a new system now, by which I'd have to enter all my health history, and
display a valid photo ID before I donate. I understand the precaution they
are taking after recent problems in blood
management, but I feel that they should do all this stuff without
burdening the donor. Especially since I am not a first time donor, and
have donated my blood for ten years now.
My apologies to the three lives that would have benefited.
