How did she find out? In the US there is HIPAA and I imagine other countries have similar laws, even without laws like that shouldn’t it be difficult to find that stuff out?

Not exactly. Each unit of blood comes from an individual donor. If more than one blood product is transfused, they will generally be from different donors.
