Mayo Medical Laboratories is pleased to provide you with the Fundamentals of Phlebotomy DVD, which has been revised from the previously released version. This comprehensive program is designed to supplement your hospital’s phlebotomy training and education. It focuses on the entire phlebotomy venipuncture process, including information on phlebotomy supplies, patient safety, and patient identification.
After participating in this program, participants should be able to:
- Explain the importance of safety for both the patient and the phlebotomist in the phlebotomy collection
- Identify the importance of positive identification of the patient and the collected sample
- Describe pre-analytical conditions that will affect a phlebotomy collection
- Identify at least two common complications of phlebotomy
