A blood test involves taking a sample of your blood and sending it to a lab for analysis. Blood tests are necessary in our emergency rooms at Dignity Health - St. Rose Dominican to quickly gain information that can help diagnose and manage medical emergencies.
If you’re concerned about your symptoms, find a quick diagnosis with a blood test in Las Vegas and Henderson, NV. If you’re going to an emergency room, use our hospitals' online waiting services to select your estimated arrival time.
In the emergency room, one of our doctors, nurses, or technicians will draw your blood. This may require several tubes (or vials) of blood, depending on the test.
