Blood Bank at NNMC
The blood bank at Northern Nevada Medical Center provides advanced blood transfusion support for patients in the hospital. The lab is staffed by certified technologists who work to ensure a safe and rapidly available blood supply that will meet the needs of all our patients. The lab operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with supervision by specially trained medical technologists and by physicians who have extensive experience in blood transfusion therapy. We use the most advanced technical methods for compatibility testing and our blood supply is provided only by United Blood Services facilities, which are fully licensed by the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The blood supply in the United States is subjected to such extensive testing that it is currently regarded as the safest blood transfusion system in the world.
