Disclosure in blood banks
Most blood banks in Mumbai have done away with professional donors and now depend on voluntary blood donation. Patients needing blood must procure a donor. This donor will be checked for Hb levels (only) and bled. Later, if the donor’s blood tests positive for HIV or Hepatitis B, the patient (for whom the donation is made) is refused blood or replacement. Some blood banks even refuse to tell the donor the reason for not giving replacement blood.
There are currently no refbacks.
