Therapeutic Phlebotomy


Recommended Posts

Hello fellow Techs, 

I just want to know if Phlebotomist are allowed to perform  Therapeutic Phlebotomy for a patient. If they are allowed, Do they need to be certified ?

In my institution it is usually the tech who do the procedure. 


Appreciating all your responses.

Here our phlebotomists perform the Therapeutic Phlebotomist. They are trained in performing it prior to them being allowed to perform the procedure. They also perform it in an area where a nurse is available in case anything happens they can come in an assist the patient.
