 Background and Objectives

 Blood transfusion is a modality of knowledge important for health care personnel to know about its different aspects. The aim of this study was to assess the knowledge of health care personnel in two hospitals of Zahedan about blood products, blood use, and adverse reactions.


 Materials and Methods

 In a study in two hospitals of Zahedan, 170 randomly selected employees from the hospital wards with the highest level of blood use participated. Data were collected via a questionnaire. For data analysis, SPSS, chi-square tests, t-test, ANOVA, and Pearson correlation coefficients were used.



 The average knowledge score of the personnel of Khatam Hospital was estimated to be 11.13 ± 3.68 and Ali ibn Abi Talib Hospital 13.31 ± 2.19. The average knowledge score of the two hospitals was 12.34 ± 3.13 with one hospital being significantly more knowledgeable than the other. But there was no correlation between age, gender, education, and work experience with the knowledge level (p > 0.01).



 The results showed that the average knowledge score of health care personnel about blood transfusion is low at the two hospitals in Zahedan. Therefore, an academic course about blood transfusion should be dedicated to medical students in universities.
