The Chilean Blood Shortage

, Talca Regional Hospital makes visitors donate blood before they're allowed to visit their sickly friends. But the hospital claims the policy is 'normal' and is practised by many hospitals. A spokesman said: "We do this because we don't have enough blood to satisfy the demand."
I guess that's one way to do it. I just hope they screen it properly afterwards.
Remember, we can always use some voluntary, qualified blood donors
