Why do phlebotomists need insurance?

Drawing blood and preparing samples for testing places phlebotomists at high risk for a lawsuit. A patient could faint and hit their head, or a mislabeled sample could lead to the wrong diagnosis. Business insurance helps pay for attorney's fees and other costs in the event of a lawsuit. It also covers property damage, auto accidents, and theft.
