I wanted to do a good thing by donating blood and have given blood on several occasions. However, I feel so harassed by the phone calls and reminders for appointments that I_m ready to stop donating. Not only are the phone calls bothersome (and I have asked for them to stop calling me and assured them that I can make my own appts and remember them), this last time I tried to give blood I was rejected because my hemocrit or hemoglobin was 12.0 instead of the required min. of 12.5. This concerned me so I got blood work done to see if I was anemic. I was well within the normal range as I always have been. I suspect the blood bank_s equipment was at fault or something else. The woman evaluting me on Aug. 31 was rather rude to me. I sometimes have the impression that they hope to disqualify me rather than accept my blood. I know they must be very careful about the quality of blood, but I simply do not feel appreciated for my efforts. I resent that I had to get blood work done to check on my iron level that was fine. Instead of checking my level twice with the same equipment, the technician should have used different equipment the 2nd time.

I have given blood all over the US before coming to Albuquerque to wrk. In fact, I have given more than 2 gallons. I never heard of UBS, but gave there once through job. As a matter of practice, in case there is a question on the blood, it is necessary to give home telephone number. Now I am shocked not only to learn that I am being solicited on that number, but I am asked to stop and it hasn_t. I didn_t expect to be used for solicitations. Giving blood is a good practice. being solicited when I have asked it to stop, is now. I don_t know who UBS is, but I have never in 20 years of givng blood to Red Cross been solicited. I don_t think it is right. I don_t know why Red Cross is not here. I don_t even know if UBS is for profit. They act that way, and I asked again for the calls to stop to tonight. This is a form of harassment.
