Day in the life of a phlebotomist
Phlebotomist (Current Employee) – Rice Lake, WI – September 23, 2015
My typical day of work is always exciting. There are never two patients the same, there are never two veins the same. I truly enjoy my patients, co-workers, and overall job. I have learned quite a bit as a new phlebotomist from my co-workers such as: personal skills, documentation, scheduling appointments, and how to communicate with other departments and providers. Some hard parts of my job include: difficult draws, patients that are nervous and upset about having lab work, and not always having the answer when someone asks and having to look into things.
Helpful co-workers, welcoming
