Blood transfusion services are the most important part of modern health care system and
maintaining the adequate supply of safe blood is an ever challenging job for blood banks. The
most important is the selection of blood donors by donor selection criteria. Blood donor
deferral is a very painful and sad experience, but retaining them for future is a very
challenging job. Hence we studied the current rate and various reasons and demographic
pattern for donor deferral in this blood bank. Study of deferral of blood donor at collection
site and donor blood deferral in blood bank will be worthwhile and enlightening. It will help
in taking corrective measures and improving strategies for donor motivation.
