Transfusion Safety is the responsibility of everyone involved in the transfusion process: from the volunteer blood donor to the blood center that collects, processes and ships to hospitals; from the hospital staff of technologists, nurses and physicians to the patient requiring transfusion. Transfusion Safety is a partnership between blood center and hospitals to ensure blood availability and promote safe, evidence-based clinical practices for all patients throughout this community. CBC provides tools and resources to support Transfusion Safety in the community. Physicians specializing in Transfusion Medicine are available for consultation to customer hospitals 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 937.461.7550.
