  • What is carried out

    In the blood-take room, venous blood and capillary blood from the finger are drawn for haematological, biochemical, microbiological and immunological tests. We take blood from adults and children from 10 years of age (younger children are taken at the children's outpatient clinic). At the same time as taking blood, we can take other biological material from the patient for examination - urine, sputum, stool. The patient takes these samples himself in standardized sampling containers, which he receives from his attending physician, who also instructs him on the correct method of collection.

  • How to make appointment

    The client arrives for the blood taking without an appointment, 15 minutes before the end of office hours, with a completed application form from the referring physician. Without a properly completed request form (marked with the required examination, stamp of the medical facility, signature of the requesting physician), the blood draw cannot be performed.

  • Samples for payment at the patient's request

    The requested sampling must be reported to the nurse in the blood-take room. She will ensure that it is billed and then carried out. The result is collected by the patient personally in the laboratory or sent by post on request. Payment is based on the current price per point. As a rule, the tests are not carried out anonymously and, where required by law, the results of the tests listed by law must be reported to the competent authorities and institutions in case of positive findings.

  • Instructing the patient before a blood-take
    • Some special examinations or functional tests require prescribed dietary or regimen measures. Information about these will be given to the patient by the attending physician well in advance of the sampling.
    • Blood taking is usually done in the morning, usually on an empty stomach.
    • The patient is instructed not to fast during the afternoon and evening (10-12 hours before the procedure). The last meal before a blood-take should be easily digestible.
    • The patient should arrange with the doctor to skip any medications before the blood-take. If they can be omitted, the patient should skip them 3 days in advance. Otherwise, the medications to be administered should be listed on the guide list.
    • Before the blood draw, the patient does not eat breakfast, does not smoke, does not drink black coffee. However, he should not suffer from thirst. It is advisable if he/she drinks 1/4 l of unsweetened tea or water in advance.
    • The blood takeing should take place in the morning or early afternoon.
    • It is not advisable to exert yourself physically (fast walking, running, walking up stairs, etc.) before the blood draw.
  • Visit to the blood-take room

    We ask clients comming to donate blood to take a serial number in the waiting room and wait to be asked to enter the blood-take room. We cannot guarantee immediate donation without waiting. The order is not strictly binding; the nurse may change it as needed. After your number is called, please give the nurse your order number, your physician's request form, and your insurance card. If necessary, submit urine samples, etc.

  • Safety measures

    We use a disposable system of tubes for blood samples, which increases the quality of the sample (pre-analytical part of the examination) and the safety of the patient and staff. All blood taking equipment is disposable and is intended for one patient only.

  • After donation

    The patient waits for the instructions of the nurse and leaves the room only after the arm has been properly treated after the injection. Any nausea or other discomfort associated with the procedure should be brought to the attention of the nurse in a timely manner. It is recommended not to strain the arm or carry heavy loads after the procedure.

  • What happens to the samples

    A nurse from the blood-take room distributes the material to the appropriate laboratory at the Hospital Jihlava. Here, our laboratory will perform an examination of the sample, or, if this examination is not performed here, it will arrange for examination in another, contracted laboratory.
