KY Blood Center urging donations amid significant shortage

The Kentucky Blood Center says blood donations are urgently needed in Kentucky.

KBC, which provides blood to 70+ hospitals across Kentucky, said they are seeing demand outpace donations with hospitals transfusing 18% more blood in recent months.

KBC says they try to maintain a three-day supply of blood to meet hospital needs but, for many blood types, they have been operating with less than a day’s supply.
