I'm a profession person who wanted to help with interferon treatments. Takes many donations per month to make just one dose. I wasn't going for an income, but I was treated like trash like I was an addict supporting a habit. Bad attitudes by the employees, who are there to hook up with evety black man In the place or for vanity reasons cuz girl got to stare into mirrors at all times. I refuse to be treated like trash while trying do what's right. I deserve respect and this place lacks in it

this business is part of Griffols, the same company that owns this companies competitor Biomat , who is down the street and pays the same. First off the wait time is lengthy, about 5 hours first visit, 3 everytime after that. You will look for employess but be lucky to see more than 2 at a time in the donation area. the first 5 times you get 50 then after that they only pay 20 first donation and 35 the second in same week. if u only donate once after the 5 times and decide to come the next week you will be starting over and getting 20. This is just another example of a big multinational robbing the poor, this time theyre very life blood, to line theyre own pockets. would not reccomend unless you want to get the 50 the first 5 times. after the 6th and getting paid 20 i was disgusted and wont be back. its a good place if your a crackhead that needs rock and can also get through the lengthy questions on computer when u walk in, exam, finger prick, long wait to get stuck, then u get the large crackheads award of 20 dollar. yay not
Tips & Advices
One study cited by the National Institutes of Health found only 1.2 percent of blood donors experienced any kind of adverse reaction from giving blood. The most common side effects from giving blood are relatively mild:
  • Lightheadedness upon standing is common. Donors are encouraged to rest for at least 15 minutes after the procedure while drinking water and eating a small snack. Some donors find they become nauseous after the procedure, but this should subside quickly.
  • Pain and some bruising around the injection site is common. Pain should be mild, but it is normal for bruising to persist for several days.
  • For a few days afterward, the loss of blood may induce dizziness or feelings of weakness when performing strenuous activity. Donors are advised to avoid physical exertion for 24 hours after the procedure, and to be cautious when exercising for the following week.
Very rarely, blood donors may vomit or faint immediately after the procedure. This is generally benign and will resolve itself within hours. Donors should seek medical attention if they experience significant pain or tingling in their arm and around the injection site, or if bruising does not subside within a week. If a donor shows signs of a cold or flu in the days following the procedure, they should call the blood center since this may make the blood sample unsafe to use.
By definition, blood donation is voluntary and done without compensation. Some blood banks do offer cash or other rewards for giving blood. Whether donors are paid or not, blood banks typically serve as intermediaries between blood sources and hospitals. Even voluntarily donated blood is usually tested, separated and sold to medical services for use in blood transfusions and other procedures.
Blood donations are considered safe when performed by trained professionals who follow all the necessary procedures. In healthy donors, side effects are generally mild (see below), and serious complications are rare.
Different organizations have their own restrictions on who is eligible to give blood. The most common requirements stipulate donors must be old enough to give legal consent (17 in most states) and should be in good physical health. Most organizations prohibit donations from people with diseases that can be transmitted through blood, such as HIV and hepatitis. Beyond that, organizations may prevent donations from people who have traveled to or lived in certain countries where there is a greater risk of disease. There might be additional restrictions in place as eligibility for blood donation is at the sole discretion of the organization collecting it.
Blood centers typically  allow eligible donors to undergo a whole blood donation once every 16 weeks (56 days). Donations through apheresis are allowed every seven days, up to 24 times per year.
