Baystate Blood Drive Program
From the Baystate Medical Center Blood Drive Program
Here are the safety measures that have been taking place during the pandemic:
- the location has the donor chairs spread 6 ft. or more apart
- equipment and chairs are cleaned between each donor
- our staff wear masks at all times; we can provide them to donors if they do not have their own
- everyone has their temperature taken before filling out the questionnaire
Our blood supply is critically low due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. We’ve been unable to take the bloodmobile out as we are unable to remain 6 ft. apart and our fixed site had to move because of a no visitor’s policy in the hospital. Because there are no patients in the Whitney Ave location, it is our hope that this will encourage the community to come out and donate.
If folks are healthy and able, we would love for them to come on out! Our hours of operation are: All eligible donors will receive a gift card to Big Y or Dunkin’
