About

Basic Function

Observe donors for any sign of reaction and/or bleeding from the venipuncture site. Immediately report any adverse signs to the Charge. Provide refreshments to donors, pre/post donation.


Specific Duties and Responsibilities

  • Watch donors for early signs of impending reactions; key signs are: donor looks pale or sweaty, donor feels light headed or dizzy, donor puts head down.
  • In all cases of a reaction, quickly and quietly get the attention of any staff member and stand by the donor to protect from possibly falling.
  • Provide refreshments to donors, pre/post donation. Encourage fluids. (Many donors need refreshments before/after donation to begin replacement of fluids and boost energy.)
