What is haematoma and what to do if hematoma occurred during sample collection?
Ideally, once blood is collected, you should apply constant pressure at the site for five minutes without folding your arm. Haematoma is localised collection of blood around the puncture site. It occurs if there is a counter puncture or oozing of blood. Apply ice pack locally to decrease collection of blood and Thrombo phobe ointment (Don’t rub, just apply it with cotton gently) subsequently.
Will we be billed if the participant cancels or the phlebotomist is unable to obtain blood flow?
There will be no charge if an appointment has to be cancelled/reschedule. Unless the phlebotomist is able to obtain blood flow, there will be no charge.
