The rate of survival for blood transfusions is very good because it is considered a safe treatment. In fact, there are mild side effects of blood transfusions that may be experienced, but not fatal symptoms.
A blood transfusion may become life threatening if the incorrect blood type is used, a mistake that could be made before the procedure. Florida Hospital takes special precautions to ensure this mistake is not made. Our medical personnel check the blood multiple times and test each donation for diseases.
