Being Barred and Rejected Hurts
Posted by on
DALLAS, TEXAS -- BioMet USA 2580 Gus Thomasson Rd. Dallas, Texas 75228.I am on Social Security Dis-ability and cannot work, the company where I had worked had not workmans compensation, due to a multiple-Trauma injury I had lost all hope, help and income. On 9-19-2011 attempting to make a donation of life saving value as well as trying to get money to help pay for school pictures for my 6 year old grandson from donating. I arrived at the site at 6:30 am to wait for the start-up for 7:00 am new doners. With the process taking me from 7:00 am to 1:00 pm for the physical exam. I had previously donated back in 2009,my last donation was 08/2009 with information concerning last surgeries back in 1969 and1980 tonsilectomy/appendectomy all this was documented. Upon asked any new surgery? I reported a Neck fusion & Miniscus Knee scope in 1-25-2010..I made a mistake and said 1-25-2009 this date was recorded by the examiner and I was denied donating and was told that I was barred from ever making any donations to this center. Upon realizing the mistake on the dates given 2 minutes later..I told her the examiner I made a mistake on the dates in question and that I could get home and return in 1 hour with documents with proof of the correct dates. I was told by an Asian Supervisor to come back next day at 7:00am 9-20-2011 ..I did as instructed from 7:00am to 11:00am ..At about 11:20 am I was seen by Physical examiner and worker name Richard stating that they could not make the corrections and that I was barred from making donations at Biomet. My attempt to help save lives, to earn income and get money to pay for my grandson school pictures was denied because Biomet employees refused to make the proper date changes as to my last surgery. My BP OK, Temp. OK, Protien OK.. where is there a remedy to correct all this..?? Dale Ward 972-255-2506/972-261-9262

Are we talking blood donations here? I used to be a regular blood donor, and a few times I was turned away because of a hematocrit reading. I am now unable to donate, being a diabetic. There must be some way to get BioMet to review the case. If not, watch for when the Red Cross has their bloodmobile in your area. I have never lived where the blood mobile didn't come around often.

I agree with Starlord, find another way to donate. There are typically a few companies in every city who need blood and plasma as badly as you need funds.

I also do not see what the supervisor being Asian has to do with your complaint.

The financial segment indicates to me you are referring to plasmapheresis, where you are paid to undergo a procedure where your blood is separate into plasma and cells, then the cells are re-introduced to the body. A number of years ago, the federal government outlawed paying for blood. I was a regular, and received thirteen dollars a pint when most got ten. Seems they never had enough B neg blood. The plasma thing is good, as you can do it much more often that regular blood donation. I do hope you can get this resolved.
