When you recruit donors interested in personal benefits, you might find success speaking to them about the mini-physical every blood donor receives when they give blood with Vitalant. This mini-physical starts during screening and includes a temperature, pulse, blood pressure and hemoglobin check. These numbers are just a snapshot in time, but over the course of multiple donations they might reveal patterns to help the donor speak with their doctor about potential issues. The mini-physical continues after donation, when the blood donation is tested for cholesterol levels and blood type.
After donation, a donor’s wellness information will populate into the donor portal. It’s a great way to keep an eye on your health while saving the lives of patients in serious medical need.
