As the “The Neglected One’ in the field of specific phobias, several studies have been geared more towards the treatment of the patient during patient care but not on the prevention of phlebotomy-related fears. Thus, in correlation with the sociodemographic profile specifically, in terms of age, sex, marital status, and preference for phlebotomy, this research aims to have a better understanding of patient’s perspective towards phlebotomy-related fears that has not yet been known despite its devastating effect on the patient's mental and physical health due to treatment avoidance. Furthermore, employing the Blood-Injection-Symptom-Scale as a data gathering tool helped determine the perceived factors of phlebotomy-related fear— which was distributed to a total of 87 non-teaching personnel (NTP) in De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute

(DLSMHSI). The data collected underwent statistical analysis, which involved both descriptive and inferential techniques to summarize the data and provide basic information about the dataset, as well as draw appropriate conclusions based on the analyzed data. To conclude, there is no significant difference as depicted by the result of the statistical analysis between the sociodemographic profile and the perceived factors of phlebotomy-related fear of the respondents.
