  2. Apply infection control procedures when performing phlebotomy on inpatients.
  3. Implement established procedures to obtain quality blood samples from inpatients.
  4. Implement established procedures to identify patients prior to blood collection.
  5. Adhere to professional standards when collecting blood samples from inpatients.

Simulation Modality:
