As a result of the recent bad weather across the country, on the heels of the holiday season, the blood supply has drastically decreased in the Southern Blood Services Region.
Type O negative and Type B negative blood supplies have dropped to emergency levels.
Type O negative blood can be used for any patient when there is not time to determine the patient's blood type. It is crucial that there is a sufficient supply.
