- Phlebotomy Policies
The Department of Pathology's Phlebotomy Policies can be found on the web at (http://www.medicine.uiowa.edu/path_handbook/Appendix/TechServ/phleb_policies.html). Due to staffing shortages on the phlebotomy team, we would like to remind all patient care areas of the deadlines for receipt of phlebotomy requisitions in the laboratory.
AM Phlebotomy: deadline is midnight
PM Phlebotomy: deadline is 5:00 PM.
In order to balance workload and dispatch phlebotomists to the appropriate areas in a timely fashion, we will be enforcing these deadlines. Requisitions can be delivered to the laboratory by the pneumatic tube system.
Please direct questions or comments regarding Phlebotomy Policies to Jan Frerichs, (6-2858), pager #3613.
