Blood collection planning in connection with having dwelt in exotic countries:
If you have dwelt in a country with the increased risk of occurrence of malaria, infectious hepatitis or other diseases passed by blood, your blood collection requires a certain postponement. Details hereto can be obtained on the websites as follows:
- Volunteer blood donation is a significant criterion of safety. Only a blood donor who is not motivated by any direct remuneration is adequately safe in the aspect of modern transfusion service. The institution of the Czech Red Cross is regularly awarding the volunteer blood donors moral prizes in the Czech Republic.
- Regulated blood donation: Blood donors with concrete blood categories are invited for collection in a given day in such a number, so that we can create an optimal reserve of transfusion preparations for our patients. The time chart of invited blood donors makes it possible to avoid long waiting times.
- Please, inform us by means of the form “Blood Donor´s Questionnaire about Subsequent Occurrence of Undesirable Reaction to the Blood Collection” when you have observed any troubles after donation.
