    Urgent Need for O Negative Blood at Cape Cod Hospital
     
    (Hyannis, May 24, 2021)  The Cape Cod Hospital Blood Bank is in urgent need of O negative blood donors. While all blood types are needed on a regular basis, there is currently a shortage of O Negative, in particular.
     
    Those with O Negative blood are considered “universal donors,” since the blood can be transfused to any patient in need, regardless of their blood type. This puts O Negative donors in the unique position to help people who are in critical need of blood.
