Description

This US News & World Report reprint examines the safety of donated blood. The investigation found that blood transfusions are far riskier that people believe. Profils a number of people who recieved blood transfusions and are now infected with HIV or have AIDS. The article finds that hospital patients are often not told of transfusion risks, official reports often understate the problem and that by March 1994, critical problems were still unresolved at blood centers, June 1994.
