Jehovah's Witnesses, whose religious beliefs prohibit them from having blood transfusions, had fewer complications and shorter hospital stays than other heart patients who had transfusions for surgery over a 28-year period at Cleveland Clinic, a new study concludes.

In fact, Jehovah's Witnesses spent less time in hospital and in intensive care, on average, and weren't as likely to need a further operation as a result of bleeding problems compared to other patients, according to the study released Monday in the Archives of Internal Medicine.
