Would taking blood from dying patients who have stopped producing more blood cells or taking in energy speed up death?

    Nobody is taking significant amounts of blood from "dying patients". Small vials of blood in order to monitor patients won't impact health or reduce their longevity.

     I also don't know where you get that all "dying patients" stop producing more blood cells. Anemia can be a result of the disease process and anemia is treated with blood transfusions if it significantly impacts health and it is severe enough to warrant a transfusion. 

    Lastly "dying patients", whatever that means medically would assume that the medical community would allow them to die without intervention or try to prevent death through medical interventions like blood transfusions but failed causing the patient death. Patients are not classified as "dying patients". Patients are classified as good, fair, serious or critical.
