If you cannot not find a vein in your arm when taking a blood test, is it ok to draw the blood from the hand?

David H
My girlfriend, licensed Phlembotomist, tells me that she draws from the hand when she can't puncture in the arm. My understanding is that this is a fine alternative, if done properly.

yes, it is actually a common practice


Vanessa C
Yes, you can draw blood from any vein, anywhere on your body, for a blood test.

Yes, when they can't find veins in your arms they will try your hand, because there are less lipids there- easier access if they can find a vein- which they usually do and it usually hurts more.

Gypsy Gal
I had it taken from my foot or leg

If they can find a vein in the hand, yes.

Yes you can take a blood sample from the back of your hand, venepuncture is part of my job
