Venepuncture is a fairly common procedure, however, correct technique and safe practice are essential in preventing inaccurate results or harm to patients and staff (WHO 2010).

What is Venepuncture?

Venepuncture is a routine invasive procedure that involves puncturing a vein with a needle to gain venous access, either for phlebotomy (the collection of blood) or the provision of intravenous therapy (Lexico 2019; RMIT 2016).

Typically, phlebotomy is used to retrieve a blood sample for laboratory testing, but it can also be used for donations or therapeutic reasons (PhlebotomyU 2019).
