Home Blood Draw

Complete Health First has made it easy to get your blood specimen collected and sent to the lab for testing.There are two ways to have your blood specimen collected.

  • IN HOME BLOOD DRAW

In Home Blood Draw Services is a service that will send a Phlebotomist to you at your convenience to draw your blood. This service is available for all blood and serum tests. The home draw service is available throughout North/South New Jersey. By using our home draw service, we will ensure that your sample is sent to the lab safely for testing and will be able to obtain the test results the next day.

  • SETTING UP A MOBILE BLOOD DRAW SERVICE IS EASY:

Once your doctor or Physician has requested a blood draw, our client services department will contact your caregiver for an appointment.

Note: To prevent possible delays, it’s important to make sure your address and contact information is correct once we call you for a home visit.

  • STANDING ORDER BLOOD DRAWS:

Your doctor may request your blood to be drawn weekly or monthly and sent to a laboratory for testing. That’s where we come in to draw your blood, right in the privacy of your home. Once drawn, your blood will be quickly shuttled to the lab where it will be tested and results will be sent directly to your doctor; it’s that easy.

  • PROCEDURE FOR HOME BLOOD DRAW:

You will need to have your PRESCRIPTION from your doctor.

The Phlebotomist will call you into the room, ask you to sit in a chair, and uncover your arm. After confirming your identity, blood is taken from a vein in your arm and put into a special blood tube. Sometimes more than one blood tube is filled depending on the type of blood test requested by your doctor; however, usually only one venipuncture is needed to collect sufficient blood for the test’s.The blood samples that are collected will then be sent to the Pathology laboratory for testing.

Note: Complete Health First does not bill patient and does not charge for traveling if the patient is insured.
