Mobile Phlebotomy Services San Diego

At the National Phlebotomy Providers Network, we believe that everyone should have access to high-quality, compassionate, and effective healthcare. We understand that there are many barriers to care that can prevent people from receiving the diagnostic care and maintenance treatment when they need it the most.

There are millions who have a lack of transportation, limited mobility, or severe medical conditions that may prohibit them from going to a lab to get their blood work done. For a long time, there was nothing that could be done to help these individuals receive the testing that they needed to improve their health.

The NPPN was created with this problem in mind. It has become our mission to provide compassionate, patient-centered care to those that need it the most. We are the nation’s premier mobile phlebotomy service, and it is our goal to remove those barriers to healthcare.

At Home Phlebotomy Services

Our at-home phlebotomy services were designed with people with limited mobility, transportation issues, and severe health conditions in mind. No longer do you have to arrange transportation to drive across town only to wait in line for hours exposing yourself to germs at a local lab.

Instead, simply schedule an appointment with our mobile phlebotomists and they will come to your home, office, or managed care facility at a date and time that is convenient for you.

What Is A Mobile Phlebotomist?

A mobile phlebotomist is no different than a regular phlebotomist that you would work with in a lab, doctor’s office, or hospital. The only thing that sets us apart is that we will travel to you to get your lab work done, and will deliver your samples to the lab of your choice. You don’t have to lift a finger!

Are Mobile Phlebotomists Safe?

Mobile phlebotomists follow the exact same safety, security, and quality protocols as any other healthcare provider. We employ only the best phlebotomists and ensure that they are consistently up-to-date on all certifications, qualifications, and continued education necessary to perform at the peak of their abilities.

In addition, all of our mobile phlebotomists are trained in the most recent and effective COVID-19 prevention measures and HIPAA protocols.

Because we directly employ our skilled phlebotomists, rather than using third-party contractors, we are to supply them with the highest quality personal protective equipment and the most state-of-the-art equipment available.

In cases of limited mobility or severe health conditions, it may be safer to have a mobile phlebotomist come to you for your blood work rather than going to a busy lab and unnecessarily exposing yourself.

How To Prepare For An At Home Phlebotomy Service

Before you or your doctor makes your appointment, they will provide you with a laboratory requisition form that will dictate which tests need to be performed. At this time your doctor will supply you with any other necessary collection equipment for any additional tests such as a urine or stool sample.

Your doctor will also inform you of what you should do prior to your appointment. It is important to follow any instructions that they give you thoroughly to ensure the best results. Typically, they will let you know if you need to fast or not and to continue taking your normal medications.

It is important to stay well hydrated the night before your appointment and the day of. It is also a good idea to make sure that you will be able to relax after you get your blood drawn and to have a snack ready to eat for after the appointment.

What To Expect During And After An In-Home Phlebotomy Service

On the day of your appointment, your mobile phlebotomist will arrive and will ask you or your caregiver to verify your identity. It is helpful to have your ID and insurance information ready to present at this time.

They will then review your doctor’s orders to get the proper tubes ready and will ask you for any other samples that you were asked to collect, such as urine or stool.

Once they have their equipment ready, they will explain the procedure to you and will use a tourniquet on your upper arm to help locate a suitable vein to draw from. They will then clean the area with an antiseptic solution and will use a sterile, one-time-use needle to perform the venipuncture.

You may feel a small pinch as the needle is inserted, but you shouldn’t feel anything more than a slight discomfort that should quickly fade. Your phlebotomist will then draw your test tubes in order.

Once the tubes have been collected, they will remove the tourniquet and the needle before applying pressure to the draw site and wrapping your arm with a bandage. This bandage should be left on for 20-30 minutes, or as long as your phlebotomist instructs.

They will then label all of your tubes in front of you and will ask you to verify the information on them one last time. Then they will pack your tubes along with any other samples and will take them to your local lab for testing. You will typically receive your results in 48-72 hours from your doctor’s office. We do not provide results, nor will our phlebotomists offer to read results for you.
