Donating Organs Saves Lives
Did you know that through organ donation, one person can save the lives of as many as eight people? Learn more about organ donation and its importance, especially for minorities, in this video from the Health Resources and Services Administration.
Many people avoid registering as an organ donor out of fear that they will not be given high-quality medical treatment in the event of an emergency. However, a doctor’s number-one priority is to ensure the health of his or her patients. Only when every lifesaving avenue has been exhausted will organ donation begin to be considered.
Find out how to register as an organ donor by calling Riverside Community Hospital at (951) 788-3000. Our nurses are available 24/7 to answer your health-related questions and provide physician referral services.
