ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The tables were turned on some Phoebe Putney employees Monday. Hospital employees were the ones getting stuck with the needles during a blood drive for the American Red Cross.
Anyone working or visiting the hospital was allowed to donate. The blood supply often drops dangerously low during holidays because people forget to donate and wrecks and create the need for blood transfusions.
Constance Roman said, "The blood supply gets really low because of the accidents that happen and hospitals still have those regular surgeries that they have to perform, so then the blood supply gets really low and that's why it's so important for people to donate because of the low blood supply."
You can schedule an appointment to donate by calling 1-(800)-GIVE-LIFE. Blood can be donated every 56 days.
