Policy: Donor Selection Criteria

These are some of the major donor criteria that I used at HMC Doha during my tenure there. Many are similar, but not identical, to the Uniform Donor Criteria prepared by the AABB, and in some cases are more restrictive than allowed by it–none were less restrictive. In all, there were about 60 questions/criteria applied and these were enforced by the dedicated blood bank computer system, Medinfo Hematos IIG.
