    When employees (on work time) donate blood at a hospital sponsored blood drive, how do you account for # of people served?? ie. if 40 employees donated 1 pint each = 40 pints…how many people served???

    We use the number of donors as the number of people served. Not sure is that is accurate as they say that a single donation could save up to 3 people. I would be interested in hearing what feedback you get.

    Similar to Tina, we’ve discussed this at a state level in CT and the American Red Cross has provided data that the persons calculated can be derived by taking number of productive pints x 3 (maximum number of patients served per pint).

    We don’t count number of people served on this activity, just the hours that employees are gone from their jobs to do the actual donations. We only count “people served” when we actually have “nose-to-nose” contact with people (e.g. taking blood pressure at health fairs). We count our in-kind donations for blood drives but do not record a number for people served since that is beyond our control to know without asking Red Cross to do double work.
