RE: Blood donation

Eric, While it has never been a written policy, it has been our practice that there be 72 hours between donation and the beginning of a shift. This was based on the recomendation in the operational polices section of the Air Medical Crew National Standard Curriculum. While that text is old this policy seems to make a lot of sense to me and I have never felt a need to revise it.

A question for the group. 
Does your organization have a policy regarding crew members donating blood and their time to return to unpressurized aircraft duty?  I am considering writing a policy and am curious what others may have done.
Thanks in advance.
