Typical day at work is coming in at 0500am.....as a Certiftied IV Therapist, I draw blood for entire hospital and place IVs. There is always something new to learn and a lot of autonomy with the job. The hardest part is having to return time and time again for blood draw or IV placement; patients get very tired and sensitive to constant blood draws. I am a wife of a retired Veteran and my 4 sons have served in the Marines and Airforce. My job is to give back to those Veterans who have served our country and to keep our freedom, free. I have learned to be flexible, listen, be unhurried, and personable and professional within my workplace and towards my patients. As well as being a facilitator for their needs and concerns.
