Productive and fast-past workplace
Phlebotomist/Lab Carrier (Current Employee) – Martinsburg, WV – December 12, 2017
My day can either be relaxed and slow-paced or it can be fast-paced and stressful. We get pretty busy. Also, as a lab courier we sometimes get busy and we work independently. I am still expected to do my job properly just like anyone else and that means carrying heavy supplies and transporting them to many places. As a phlebotomist, I go to many parts of the hospital and draw patients blood for testing. That includes the ER, a stressful part of the hospital. After retrieving the blood, we take it to the laboratory to be spun down and tested. I provide patient care such as adding blankets for the warmth of the patient, adjusting a patient who is in an uncomfortable position (some patients are very heavy), and anything to make a patient happy and satisfied.
