“Quality, safety, and education issues were obviously very much a part of the authors’ agenda. I was pleased to see the authors concentrate efforts on why procedures and techniques are performed a certain way. I believe that understanding why we do things a certain way makes for less deviation from established protocols.”—Carol Becker, MS, MLS(ASCP), Program Director, School of CLS/School of HT, OSF Saint Francis Medical Center, Peoria, Illinois
