7 )Y HURLBURT, right, blood bank technologist at Mason - neral Hospital, removes blood from a donor at the )spital. HERE, MRS. HURLBURT checks blood samples from the blood bank at Mason General Hospital. ospl The transfusion of blood is a part of the total health care at Mason General Hospital - a most important and precious service available to people in this area. This service involves the drawing of blood from a donor, the storage of blood units, and the transfusion of blood to patients in need. As a community Blood Bank, it is a non-profit service available to the physicians for their patients. In 1970 nearly 600 units of whole blood, mostly donated by local persons, were cross-matched and made available for more than 300 patients who had major surgery. In addition, Three From Here Enlist In Army Three young men from the Shelton area recently enlisted in the United States Army according to SSG Roderick Sinclair, local Army Recruiter. All three enlisted under the Guaranteed Option Program. Douglas Wallace, son of Mrs. Violet Wallace of Shelton enlisted in tile Army Aviation Program. John Larson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Austin Larson of Shelton enlisted in the Army's Law Enforcement field. He is now taking Basic Training at Ft. Lewis. Peter Covert, son of Dr. Stanley ('overt of Shelton enlisted in the Army's Medical Speoalist Field and is also now taking Basic Training at Ft. Lewis. as [oo the hospital Blood Bank provided 47 units of blood to 12 patients in critical situations to replace lost blood due to excessive hemorrhage• Equally important is the help given to three local residents who had open heart surgery in Seattle. In these special cases 43 units of blood were donated at Mason General Hospital as advance replacements for patients. Like any good banking procedure, credit can be arranged, as it was for these patients through the King County Central Blood Bank in Seattle. Similar arrangements can be made witil Blood Banks located in Tacoma and Olympia. Savings accounts are vital to total blood bank service. An adequate supply of whole blood is stored in the Bank at all times and is readily available for both emergency and routine surgical needs. A minimum supply of 14 units of varying blood-type groups arc stored at the Hospital Blood Bank. In addition to these blood units on hand, a complete file of potential blood donors whose blood types have already been determined is maintained• By use of this donor file which includes phone numbers it is possible to reach a donor with a rare blood type on relatively short notice• Residents of this community as well as service organizations and local companies are encouraged to set up accounts or pools at the Bank. By making early deposits it is possible then to use blood credits at any other an hospital in the United States as may be designated by the individual or groups. Local organizations participating in the Blood Bank are Simpson Timber Company, ITT Rayonier, Washington Corrections Center, Certified Manufacturing Company, Washington State Patrol Academy, the Jaycees, the Jayettes, and the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Any individual eligible to donate blood may open a blood bank account in their name. Donors need only to request that the donation be credited to himself or another person - a good life saving investment. No substitute for blood has yet been developed. Blood may be given by any healthy volunteer of age 18 through 65 years. A short medical history sheet if filled out at the time of registration, a check for possible anemia is made, and if the person is not under the care of a physician it takes about one hour to donate a unit of blood. Orange juice and coffee is provided following the procedure. Giving blood ks safe and simple. Medical direction of the blood bank, which is part of the Thurston - Mason County Blood Bank operation, is under the supervision of Dr. Kenneth Partlow, an Olympia Pathologist.
