Blood Donation Lines Stretch Blocks in Vegas

Blood Donation Lines Stretch Blocks in Vegas”

(Central Coast, CA) - Our sister United Blood Services blood center in Las Vegas has provided almost 200 units of blood and blood products so far to area hospitals treating victims of the concert shooting last night.

Corley said Blood Centers of the Pacific, which has donation centers in Santa Rosa, Napa and San Rafael, stands ready to send blood supplies directly to Las Vegas.

Las Vegas Police are calling for blood donations to the city.

Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center said in a statement it received 14 patients who died and more than 160 who were injured.

"Unfortunately, in a situation like Las Vegas, we don't know what the response will be until the hospitals start to put in orders to say what's going on for their surgery schedule or what their response was", Coats said. "They have enough supply to last them for the foreseeable future". Numerous patients lost a lot of blood and many needed surgery. "So I'd come in and do it, if I wasn't doing it already". It's the blood on the shelf that saves lives when tragedy strikes. "I figured this was the only way I can help", said Meggan Heiden, who has friends of friends who were at the targeted Las Vegas concert Sunday night. "We are grateful for the donations, but we want to collect blood based on the need".

There were lines "hundreds deep" at blood donation centres across the state as donors waited for up to six hours from the early hours in the morning to help the more than 500 injured.

Steve Sisolak, a current candidate for Governor of Las Vegas, posted a plea to Twitter asking for people to donate blood, which was retweeted by the Mayor of Las Vegas, Carolyn Goodman.

She says just be healthy, well hydrated and not on medication, if possible.

"If you have the ability to donate blood to help the cause, please do so", he said, according to Fox News.
