Blood Bank is the division of the hospital that that collects, stores, processes, and transfuses blood. Whole blood is collected from the donor and separated into components. Thereafter blood components are stored, tested and issued to the patient after matching the stored blood component to the patient’s blood.
We at Bhagat Chandra Hospital have been running a state of the art licensed 24 hour blood bank since the year 2011. Availability of Blood Bank within the hospital premises helps us in providing enhanced health care to the patient. Our expert Pathologists ensure that the highest standards are maintained ensuring the delivery of safe blood components to the patients.
We also offer specialised test for screening of the donated blood which further reduce the chances of transfusion associated transmission of infection. These tests are done over and above the routine testing done for all donated blood as per NACO guidelines.
