I do but only for myself before surgeries. I have too many abnormalities in my system to let them take my blood for anyone other than myself.

No go. Born in Subsaharan Africa.

 

I'm an RN in ICU (a nurse) and we (nurses) don't draw blood in our hospital. They have phlebotomists for that and they're not nurses or anything special that requires any schooling, only a little training. Most hospitals in the US are like that and use phlebotomists. Nurses do put in IVs though :evilgrin:

they won't let me since i was in the UK during madcow outbreak in like 98 or something. i guess they think 13 years later im a carrier?

 

kinda stupid if you ask me. i know who go to give blood drunk, all drugged up but they won't use me because i was telling the truth.

Never on purpose, and I almost always give it to the ground or floor when I do.

waht?

you donate blood for yourself? before surgery?

hahaaha what??

 

It is pretty common for people with health abnormalities and rare blood to stockpile their own blood at a hospital for their use only if they know they will need it in the near future.

Every 3 months. There is a united blood services near me. They always call me because there is something about my blood they like because they can give it to babies. I think because it is CMV negative or something like that.
