Valley Hospital : COVID-19 Serum Testing & Donation


the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, If you’ve recovered from COVID-19, your blood may help save the life of someone at The Valley Hospital.

Valley is proud to join the Mount Sinai Health System, as well as other healthcare institutions across New York and northern New Jersey, in asking recovered COVID-19 patients to be serum donors.

Eligible patients may volunteer to donate blood, which will be screened for the presence of the disease’s antibodies. Antibody-rich plasma can then be transferred into COVID-19 patients at Valley whose conditions are considered severe or life-threatening. This process, called plasmapheresis, has been used in China to help COVID-19 patients improve.
