Let's Talk About The Ten Commandments of Phlebotomy



When you hear someone mention the Ten Commandments, what do you think of? Probably not phlebotomy, right? LOL. Well.... a few years ago, I came across a poster of "The Ten Commandments of Phlebotomy", and they were written on a scroll. I thought it was funny, but true. Every one of the commandments listed on there is very important when it comes to phlebotomy. I think that for me, the patient identification referenced is slightly more important than the other nine. But that's just my opinion of course. I decided to sit down and talk about them. Maybe you can find some truth in them as well. If we followed these commandments, ideally there would be no problems with collecting a sample, preventing injury to our patients or ourselves, and providing quality care and specimens, all from ten standards that we should always follow in phlebotomy.

What are your thoughts?

Keep in mind, this post has nothing to do with religion. I just want to express my thoughts about a poster that I saw with "The Ten Commandments of Phlebotomy".
