Directed donation allows a patient to select particular donors, such
as family members or friends, for anticipated transfusion needs. The
selected donor agrees to voluntarily provide blood for use by the
patient during his or her procedure. Because of increased processing
time, directed donations must be made three or more working days prior
to anticipated use.
