TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - An emergency blood shortage state-wide put officials on high alert.
Dr. Christine Toevs works at Terre Haute Regional Hospital's Trauma Center.
She told us one critically injured patient can use 50 to 60 units of blood.
As people become more active over the summer, the need for blood donations increases.
