The only thing I would recommend is that you contact the clinic where the testing was done. There's just no way on an internet forum we can help you guess where the blood came from.
I WILL tell you that most ALL phlebotomy equipment these days is single use only, meaning it won't work a second time. So, if you're worried about the nurse using a previously utilized needle, that's just not realistic.
It's not at all unusual for blood to come out of the needle after phlebotomy. No concern.
Hello nursegirl and thanks for your response.
In the past, i have seen blood come out around puncture site, the concern im having is because the blood was not "connected" to the puncture site, it was like two stray drops of blood away from the wound, is it possible that the blood splashed or something like that when the needle was inserted?
When i saw the two drops of blood the needle was still inside my vein, so either it was blood splashed from the vein upon needle insertion ( i dont know if this is possible) or the needle had blood inside ( dont know if it was reused or used to extract blood from another sample )
Just saw several venipuncture videos and blood just dosen't jump out of the vein when the needle is inserted (sometimes it just oozes out).
The droplets of blood came from the needle before it was inserted in my vein (i saw them when the needle was still inside the vein, not after), i guess i will have to wait 3 months to get tested.
Too add, it's not uncommon for a few drops of blood to be present on the top of the collection tubes. It could very well be from when the nurse changed tubes, especially because that's done rapidly.
