Donor Pass FAQ

Why Should I Give Blood

Someone will need blood every two seconds and just one donation can save up to three lives. With all the wonderful advances in modern medicine, there is no manufactured substitute for human blood. It must be provided by volunteer blood donors in the community.

One in three people need blood in their lifetime. If you don’t need blood, it’s almost certain that someone close to you will. As a community blood center, we provide the blood components to hospitals and medical facilities in the community. After you donate with us, you will be able to review your blood type, cholesterol, blood pressure and other health information on our Donor Portal.

What is Donor Pass?

Donor Pass is an online feature that allows blood donors like you to complete the medical history questions independently, in a private setting at a time that is convenient for you, prior to arriving to the donation site.

How does it work?

You can access Donor Pass from lifeshare.org/donorpass on the day of your donation. Using this web-based format—accessible from a computer/phone with internet access—you are able to answer medical history questions confidentially, print out a QR code that contains your hidden responses, and bring it with you for your donation.

How far in advance can I complete my Donor Pass?

You MUST complete the Donor Pass ON THE SAME DAY of your blood donation. Online interviews completed prior to 12:00 AM the day of donation will be invalid and you will have to repeat the interview at the time of your donation.

What are the benefits of using Donor Pass?

Because you will have already completed your required medical history questions prior to your donation, the process will potentially be shortened—reducing time away from work and personal commitments.

Does Donor Pass determine my eligibility to donate?

No, Donor Pass does not determine your eligibility to donate; that will be done at the time of your donation.

What if I can’t access Donor Pass from my work computer?

Donor Pass is available, securely through standard protocols, to all internet users. However, access to it may be restricted on some employers’ or service providers’ networks, for reasons of their own. If you have difficulty accessing or completing the Donor Pass, please contact the technical support team at your organization. LifeShare Blood Center cannot provide technical support outside of our own network boundaries.

Will I have to answer the questions again when I arrive to donate?

Typically not. A LifeShare Blood Center Donor Specialist will scan your Donor Pass QR code and review your responses. In rare instances, you may have to answer the questions again at the time of donation if:

  • Your Donor Pass QR code is unavailable, lost or cannot be read by the scanner.
  • Donor Pass was not completed on the same day as your blood donation.
  • If computer systems are down at the time of your donation.
What if I answer a question incorrectly?

You will have the opportunity to go back and correct your answers at any time during the interview process by selecting the “Review Answers” button. If you have already completed the interview and printed your Donor Pass QR code, you should notify a Donor Specialist at the donation site of your desire to change an answer.

What if I am not sure how to answer a question?

Using Donor Pass, you can skip a question and review it with a Donor Specialist at the time of your donation.

Does Donor Pass ask different questions than a typical medical history questionnaire?

No. All blood donors are asked the same required medical history questions—regardless of the format used to answer them.

How do I obtain my QR code?

Upon completion of Donor Pass, you will be given the option to print, take a screenshot or email your QR code.

What if I lose my QR code?

Please print, save, or email your barcode receipt to yourself. If you lose your QR code you will need to complete a new medical history questionnaire, either online or at the donation site.

Will my Donor Pass QR code scan if my phone screen is cracked?

Probably not. In that instance, it’s best to print your Donor Pass QR code prior to going to your donation location.
