I am thinking of hiring a phlebotomist for my practice, as i usually send all of my patients to outside places for routine draws. Does anyone know if I need special medical insurance to hire phlebotomists? what happens if they get stuck or something.

I would ask your insurance company that question. They would know the right answer to your question.

Hire a Independant Contracted Phlebotomist and you would not have to worry about their liability issues. They will take care of their own insurance being contractors. They can come into your office when blood work needs to be collected whichever way you and the contractor agree.

A lot of physicians hire a phlebotomist for thier practices for many reasons,the nurse or ma may be busy or need to be free to get the next patient set up. As far as insurance if your nurse or ma has been doing this till now they should cover a certified person working in your office. I myself have been certified for the past 5 years and have worked in clinical and hospital settings. I also have certifications in ekg, cna, medical coding, and phlebotomy. If you are near Huntington WV. I would be interested in working for you. e-mail me at www.diana.3310@hotmail.com

Hi Patricia. I had a question for you. I completed a phlebotomy program in May 2009 and became nationally certified through NHA Sept 2009.

if your Medicial Assistant was drawing blood would you need special insurance? Phlebotomist are not required to have liability insurance although it can to purchase, one othere suggestion there are so many new grads that are looking for work, would you take a chance and hire a new grad.

I'm in Mansfield, OH.

I am a Certified Phlebotomis, looking for a job. I was a Dialysis Tech for 1 year, and I did my Phlebotomy training in Columbus, OH. Did my clinical at LabCorp of Mansfield,OH, with and "outstanding" as my final preception.

I am very good at drawing blood and just need someone to give me a chance. Most places want a year of "paid" experience...well, how do I get that if no one will give me a chance? I would love to work for a private Dr's office or a hospital.

Keep your heads up guys!! I got certifed last year and it almost took me a year to find a job. Most people are looking for experience phlebotomist jobs but there are some places that do take people right out of school. Just keep applying EVERYWHERE and eventually something will come up. Once you get your foot in the door somewhere it will all be uphill from there. I'm on my third phlebotomy job and I'm loving it. Stay positive! =)

Don't any of you just get hired during your internships? The school I'm going to start in early October for phlebotomy said that 50% of their students are hired during their internships.

Nothing special....You would need to cover them under your liability insurance. You cannot defend against them gettig stuck. Get one that is not right out of school and with experince...you do not wnat them making a pin cushion out of your patients.

I have been a phlebotomist for over 11 years, and I think it is unfair to say that new grads are terrible at drawing. There are phlebotomist I have come in contact with in my time that have worked in the field for many years that are not good phlebotomist. Please give a new grad a chance. I was glad that 11 years ago someone took a chance on me. Not only to I draw I teach phlebotomy also.

Not in the state of Georgia only when you are doing Life Insurance blood draw etc. and that is for some most companies covr that. they only insurance you carry as an independant contractor is auto because you are transporting the bllod.

Yes they have to be insured. I am a certified Phlebotomist. I have a national certificate which means I can work any where in the United States. Some schools that offer phlebotomy training are only for that particular state and certified to work only there and can not work anywhere else. That's off the subject however, I always share that because I find that a lot of people aren't aware of that!
However, back to your question....yes you have to have insurance. I am insured and students have to be insured when touching patients just in case a law suite ever arises. Anyhow I still am currently insured once you get insured you keep your own insurance and have to pay the insurance cost to keep it. It's typically an annual payment. It's really not expensive. I would ask the phlebotomist while interviewing them if they are currently insured and to prove it by bringing all of their insurance paper work and a copy of their policy. Which I have now and have had for a long time. You can even get it online and get extra copies emailed and printed. I would also state that in the job title and ad for employment. However, if you want to check to see if you could have them added to your insurance as well. But as stated they should already have insurance because I do and I am a certified phlebotomist through the ASPT.

I have worked as a phlebotomist for over 13 years. I also am a phlebotomy instructor I have never heard of an phlebotomy who is employed by an organization carrying their own liability insurance. Although there is low cost insurance available. If one wishes to purchase it. Secondly the only state at this time to my knowledge that
Requires additional training is California, and national certification means just that it is respected in any state. The only problem is employers are seeking phlebotomist that hold certain agency certificate such as ASCP. This organization has very strict guidelines for school.
