In Response To: Re: donating blood to learn one's blood type (Dorothy Carlson)
My husband was the one who was turned away at the blood bank. He was well groomed and dressed in a suit and tie and looks healthy. They did not know his blood type when they turned him away. They have a general policy that says that they will only accept blood from someone who's "only motive" is to donate because it is a good deed. This broad policy is meant to mainly screen out folks looking for free AIDS test, which I can understand. But the policy is way too broad in my opinion. You'd think they would be motivated to have more folks know their blood type so that when they put out their urgent pleas for a particular blood that they would have a higher chance of the needs being met. Perhaps the letter that I have sent them will get them to reconsider their policy.
No, our MD did not have his blood type, either, but thanks for the other suggestions, which we'll follow-up on.
