In our mobile phlebotomy ambulance, we travel to your home, office, nursing home, assisted living facilities—just about anywhere in New England—to draw your blood or collect other doctor-ordered specimens. In a nutshell, where you can be, we can be there!
For your specific lab test, we strictly adhere to all required OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) safety precautions, follow the order of each diagnostic process, and use the correct color-coded tubes and labeling to meet the requirement of each venipuncture. Our ambulance is supplied with all of the medical equipment and instruments we use in our labs, including needles, tube holders, evacuated tubes (referred to as an ‘Evacuated Tube System – ETS’), fingerstick for collecting smaller amounts of blood and heelprick for infants, and all required hazardous material (hazmat) waste receptacles.
Our service includes making the patient aware of the tests we will be performing, in which order, explaining the procedure, and offering instructions on post-puncture care.
