Phlebotomy tip for Medical Assistants:

When a suitable vein cannot be found in the antecubital fossa, you will have to collect the blood from somewhere else- The Hand .

The Veins of the back of the hand are small and fragile. For this reason, you should use a smaller gauge needle and tube, or a syringe.

The steps in collecting blood from the back of the hand are very similar to those for routine venipuncture. A butterfly needle is ideal for a hand draw, because the tubing allows for a lower angle of insertion than a standard needle.

Phlebotomy tips for Medical Assistant: when drawing blood on the elderly and children, use a butterfly needle.when you use a butterfly needle on the elderly, pull back the patient's skin to straighten out the vein to make the skin more stable before you insert the needle into the skin.This helps when it's time to stick, and the patient feels less pain while the procedure is done.

"It Is NOT true that medical assistants cannot be sued!"
Medical malpractice law suits remain high in the United States. It is estimated that 75% of physicians will have been sued before reaching retirement age. Even though medical assistants are employees working under the umbrella of the licensed physician or practitioner ultimately responsible for their actions it does NOT mean that they cannot be named in an individual law suite should an injury occur.
