    Your Blood Test: Section 5

    5. Phlebotomy


    To guarantee proper collection, the phlebotomist is required to verbally confirm the patient's name and date of birth.

    To assure patient safety, a new and unused needle kit and tubes are shown to the patient prior to the blood being drawn.

    The labeled and initialed tube is checked against the requisition for accuracy.
