"Blood Test"

About: Wexham Park Hospital

Having previously visited on several occasions I have never had any concerns until now.

On having a blood test the area of the arm was not cleaned.

On removal of the needle instead of being given a cotton pad too hold over the puncture area, the individual placed the pad under the tourniquet.

This process was not clean and I would think this has implications on health and safety.

The whole process was actioned with minimal communication.
