Preanalytical errors in Emergency Departments
EFLM is collaborating with the European Society for Emergency Medicine (EUSEM) and the European Society of Emergency Nursing (EuSEN) on a project concerning preanalytical errors in Emergency Departments which are currently facing serious challenges.

Preanalytical errors affect the performance of Emergency Departments negatively and compromise the quality of care.

The aim of this collaboration is to have a deep understanding of the problems in the preanalytical phase affecting the performance indicators, like the total time in the Emergency Department. To do that, a survey on blood sampling has been assembled with the following objectives:


  • To have a deep understanding of the Preanalytical Phase Process (PPP) in the Emergency Department
  • To identify the use of key performance indicators (KPI) in the PPP


  • To evaluate the use of the KPI
  • To estimate the rate of rejections

We will appreciate your participation, especially considering the actual Covid situation. This survey takes approximately 10 minutes to finish. The results of this survey will give us a clear understanding of the preanalytical phase in the emergency department.

The survey will remain accessible till December 7, 2020. Please feel free to invite other laboratories to take part in this survey and thanks in advance for your collaboration.
