Here at VeniExpress, we take very seriously our role in helping to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our service areas of Southern California and Arizona. We are taking every precaution to ensure the safety of our patients, as well as that of our staff. As such, we make sure our phlebotomists follow strict guidelines when dealing with patients.
Here are the steps our company is taking to help prevent the spread of infectious diseases, such as the Coronavirus:
- Practicing strict hand and respiratory hygiene
- Using personal protective equipment, such as gloves, masks, and eyewear
- Taking the necessary steps to provide a safe and sanitary environment for drawing blood
- Equipping our phlebotomists with face shields and N95 masks
Experienced and Highly Trained Mobile Phlebotomists
VeniExpress only hires highly qualified and experienced phlebotomists who understand the importance of following important health and safety guidelines. Our team undergoes extensive training and takes regular proficiency tests to ensure they are following our strict procedures.
In addition, the Quality Assurance (QA) department at VeniExpress, which closely monitors all of our phlebotomy work, recently went through a thorough audit in February. As a result, our team is up-to-date on all of the latest best practices regarding safety and the handling of specimens.
Mobile Phlebotomy: A Safer Option
As the Coronavirus spreads throughout the United States, many people have legitimate concerns about leaving their homes, even for vital services such as blood draws.
Even if not under quarantine, it is still prudent for people, especially those most vulnerable to the virus, to avoid crowds at this time, unless absolutely necessary. Mobile phlebotomy services are a great option for those who need lab work done, but prefer to not travel to a patient service center.
The mobile phlebotomists at VeniExpress come to you for blood draws and specimen collection, so you can stay in the comfort and safety of your own home. We are partnering with several local laboratories to service their patients who want or need to have their blood drawn or specimens professionally collected in their homes.
VeniExpress takes great pride in our customer service and processes. You can rest assured that our experienced and highly trained phlebotomists will take every precaution to keep you safe and protected from the Coronavirus.
