Blood Book, information about blood, facts, transfusion, donation, blood safety, diseases, disorders, autologous blood collection and storage. There is a risk of infection with serious Blood borne diseases such as with transfusion. Advances in science and technology promise much needed higher standards of safety in Blood collection. The International Journal of Clinical Transfusion Medicine is an international, peer-reviewed, open access, online journal publishing clinical-experimental, policy-making and evidence-based practices of all topics pertaining to clinical transfusion medicine. From January 1, , through Decem , healthcare facilities repor events involving a blood transfusion to the Pennsylvania Patient Safety Authority. Of these reports, 19, (99%) were categorized as Incidents that did not result in patient harm. The Division of Transfusion Medicine is responsible for the collection and testing of blood to be given to patients at Mayo Clinic (traditional "blood banking"). The Quality Assurance Unit watches over the safety, purity, potency and efficacy of the blood products collected and transfused at Mayo. The Transfusion Laboratory is.

To ensure that all these aspects of blood transfusion are being properly addressed, many countries have instituted hospital transfusion committees.

In the past few years there has been increasing concern about blood transfusion safety. Avoidable transfusion errors, mostly in patient identification, remain a serious cause of injury and death.

There is also heightened awareness of the risk of transmission of viral and bacterial by: CDC is one of the federal agencies responsible for assuring the safety of the U.S. blood supply by protecting health through investigations and surveillance.
