4 Easy Steps to Donation
Nebraska Community Blood Bank makes giving blood as easy as possible. Our friendly, professional staff is trained and ready to make your donation a smooth experience from start to finish.
Here are the quick and simple steps to donating:
Welcome! You will be asked your name, date of birth and to show identification. You’ll complete a donor questionnaire pertaining to health, travel and lifestyle. All questions asked are required and answers are strictly confidential.
- Health Check.
A trained healthcare professional will check your blood pressure, hemoglobin, temperature and pulse. Be assured, we will never ask you to give if you are not in the best of health.
- Relax while you save a life.
The donation process takes 8-14 minutes for whole blood donors. A needle is inserted (you will feel a slight sting) and blood is drawn while you sit back and relax.
- Congratulations! Celebrate with cookies and juice.
It’s time to reward yourself with cookies and juice. After a few minutes you’ll be ready to resume your daily activities.
