When should a phlebotamist use a butterfly needle?

What are the drawbacks of using one?

When one of your patients requests it, seems extremely nervous about getting blood drawn, or is a child since they have smaller veins than an adult. The drawbacks of the butterfly needle on an adult is it takes longer to get the amount of blood you need to draw.
