This video identifies the types of injuries patients suffer from poorly performed venipunctures that can lead to legal action against those who draw blood specimens and their employers. Detailed descriptions of the mistakes phlebotomists and their managers make that result in those injuries are presented using actual case studies from the files of an expert witness. Includes access to CE questions for inhouse use. This video qualifies viewers to obtain 1 unit of P.A.C.E. continuing education credit. (Additional fee applies.)
