Excellent opportunities to expand experience
Blood Bank Technician (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – April 19, 2017
This facility is the main trauma center in San Antonio and offers a very unique opportunity for those that work in the blood bank. While nearly all other blood banks have minimum patient/doctor/nurse interaction, this hospital require blood bank to participate directly with the patients in the trauma rooms. I was able to see the amazing work of all departments involved in saving people's lives and I was able to develop my mind to work in high stress (literally life or death) situations. The management was focused and present, giving feedback and updating the team on situations daily. The hardest part of this job was the unpredictability of pace. Some days were steady, others needed all hands on deck and them some, especially if there were multiple traumas combined with the scheduled surgeries for the day.
Direct interaction with patients/doctors/nurses
