Very well explained!! THANK YOU! I am in training now and wanted kind of a feel for it before we start sticking.

We don't use a bandaid when done drawing the blood. We use a 2x2 and wrap tightly with corban. I usually tell the patient to leave it on for at least one or more hours. This should cut done on bruising.
