OBI in serious need of O-negative donors after having less than a one-day supply
OKLAHOMA CITY – A local organization is seeking blood donors after their supply dipped extremely low at the start of the new year.
The Oklahoma Blood Institute says it is in serious need of O-negative blood donors. Currently, they say they have less than a one-day supply to serve patients in area hospitals.
O-negative is a universal blood type, meaning that it can be given to a patient no matter what blood type they have. Officials say it is especially necessary in emergencies when a blood type isn’t known.
