There are many places that collect samples of blood/urine/etc for medical purposes.

In many cases tagging such point as healthcare=laboratory is not a good idea as
laboratory is somewhere else (or mapper is unable to check where laboratory exists)

Unlike healthcare=laboratory such points are typically accessible to public and

I am not aware about any good tag for that - what about healthcare=sample_collection ?

With definition "places where samples of blood/urine/etc are collected (possibly also taken)
for purpose of analyzing them. Useful when tagged on standalone locations, should not
be added to places such as amenity=hospital. For donating blood see healthcare=blood_donation"
