phlebotomy posters for trainers and managers
by Dennis Ernst • July 03, 2020
The Center for Phlebotomy Education offers special pricing on its set of five preanalytic posters that vividly portray sound specimen collection techniques that reinforce key concepts with your staff and students. The set consists of:
- Blood Specimen Collection Sites and Precautions wall atlas
- Ten Commandments of Phlebotomy
- Order of Draw
- Accurate Results Begin With Me!®
- Blood Collection Errors and Impacts
The Blood Specimen Collection Sites and Precautions wall atlas illustrates the anatomy of the antecubital area, depicting acceptable sites for blood specimen collection and text describing the risks of venipuncture. It is the only poster that shows nerves, veins, and the brachial artery of the antecubital area. The Ten Commandments of Phlebotomy proposes 10 rules all specimen collection personnel should consider to be "commandments" for performing the procedure.
The Order of Draw poster shows the order in which blood collection tubes must be filled to prevent additive carryover from altering testing results. Accurate Results Begin With Me!® lists 30+ tips on specimen collection embedded within a starburst design that draws attention. Blood Collection Errors and Impacts, the largest in the collection, lists over 40 errors that can be committed during the collection, transport, and handling of blood samples. A corresponding column lists the impact each error has on the test result and patient.
All five posters are printed in full color and laminated for durability. By displaying these posters in your outpatient draw stations and collection areas, you communicate to your patients that your facility is committed to assuring specimen quality and patient safety.
