Obtaining the sanitary license for the production of blood components and blood derived substances is anything but easy; there it lays the importance of this certification that enables the Cienfuegos city Blood Bank to do so.
There are experts in the State Center for the Control of Medicine Quality (Spanish acronym CECMED), who rigorously evaluate the accomplishing of adequate practice and the final quality of the product before granting such certification to the interested entity.
The pride of the staff in Cienfuegos city Blood Bank is well founded; it is the second facility in the country receiving such important authorization. “We are actually happy. All workers have had to do with this accomplishment, since the quality of our productions was not the only element taken into account. It was also assessed the comfort of our facilities, the preparation of our personnel as well as the service and attention given to the donors”, explained Yeinnins Santiago León, Director of the Blood Bank in this southern territory.
This facility holds the distinction of National Reference and the teaching category for the formation of professionals and lab technicians in transfusion medicine. Due to its excellent integral results it was also the first staff being declared “Tenth Congress” Spanish “Décimo Congreso”) within the Health care Union in Cienfuegos.
The granting of the sanitary license will enable Cienfuegos Blood Bank growing development and substitution of imports in blood derived products, a medical institution officially identified with the name of Doctor Enrique Silvino Font D´ Escoubet.
