Abstract

The collection of venous blood is central in clinical laboratory activity. Although there is widespread perception that this practice is simple and free of complications and side effects, it is undeniable that the vast majority of laboratory errors arises from ignorance, incompetence or negligence during venipuncture. It has hence become advisable to prepare a document in simplified form of checklist, consisting of a concise but comprehensive list of activities to be completed or verified in order to prevent errors during venous blood collection. In the intention of authors, this synthetic checklist is a modular tool, adaptable to different local contexts, it can be easily and gradually implemented, it is supported by scientific evidence and consensus of experts and created with the support of different healthcare professionals and it is adherent to the best practices and requires minimal resources for implementation. It is reasonable to assume that this checklist may be able to withstand system and individual changes, strengthening the standards for safety of both operators and patients, limiting potential failure patterns. We hope that the checklist may be implemented in all healthcare facilities where routine venous blood collection is performed, after adaptation to suit characteristics of local organization.
