National Register of Persons Permanently Excluded from Blood Donation (NROVDK)

PURPOSE OF DETECTION OF REQUESTED DATA

The purpose of detection of requested data is registration of persons who are excluded from blood donation for defined reasons, mostly for carriage of serious blood-borne infections (e.g. hepatitis B or C, HIV). The objective of registration is to increase safety of blood transfusion preparations to be used in therapy of patients in the CR, and to diminish the risk of transmission of a serious infection. With regard to the gravity of possible transmission of a serious infection in blood transfusion it is necessary to register persons excluded from blood donation even without their consent. Excluded persons must be traced and registered nominally, anonymisation is not possible (except for statistical outputs). The register must be operated in electronic version allowing immediate identification of a potentially hazardous blood donor, right on entry into the facility of transfusion service, prior to any blood or blood component transfer.

Ministry of Health will establish National Register of Persons Permanently Excluded from Blood Donation within 24 months from the day of entry into force of Act no. 372/2011 Coll. on health services (section 127, par. 1, letter b).
