Tragic bus crash triggers emergency call for blood donors

The tragic motor vehicle accident on the Aurora Bridge this morning is making major demands on the local blood supply. Bloodworks Northwest has issued an urgent appeal to blood donors to help meet those critical needs.

“With up to 40 people with injuries, we are responding quickly to additional orders for blood components from multiple hospitals receiving people injured in the crash,” said James P. AuBuchon, MD, president and chief executive officer. “We need to meet this emergency demand and also to replenish supplies so that we can continue to meet normal patient needs.”

“To avoid a crisis for the local blood supply we’re asking donors who have not donated recently to schedule an appointment as soon as they can at one of our twelve centers, or to find a mobile drive in their community close to where they live or work,” AuBuchon said. “There is a special need for O-positive and O-negative blood types.”

Information about locations and times can be found at bloodworksnw.org. Appointments are encouraged, but walk-ins are also welcome. Appointments can be made online at schedule.bloodworksnw.org or by calling 1-800-398-7888.

Web We encourage media to place our Web site link on your site. Our site www.bloodworksnw.org, contains everything a potential donor needs to know about blood donation and other information about us.
