Collection Technician, Nashville, TN - June 20, 2015
A typical day at work would be to gather all the supplies that I needed for the day, go into one of the patients rooms and I would start to test the urine samples that the patients would leave at their appointment. I learned how to test samples in different ways. The first way would be in the cup given to the patients. The second way I learned to test patients would be to get an oral sample by swabbing the inside of the patients mouth. I worked with medical assistants in the office and they were all so very nice. If I had a question they were always there to ask. I would say the hardest part of the job would be the language barrier that I had sometimes with patients. The most enjoyable part of my job would be getting to know everyone I worked with and communicating with the patients. I would also say that knowing I did my job right is also a highlight.
