Phlebotomist technicians are a part of medical laboratory teams trained to collect blood samples. Their roles are patient facing, but they also aid in the transportation of samples to the laboratory.
Although they primarily obtain samples through venipuncture, they must also know how to get smaller quantities of blood through other techniques, including finger sticks and heel sticks. Other duties include verifying patient records, taking vital signs and testing samples.
Phlebotomist technician jobs require patience. Many patients fear getting blood drawn, and phlebotomists must help to alleviate their fears. Additionally, they need be accurate and have the utmost attention to safety procedures. When handling blood, disease transmission is a threat to both the patient and the phlebotomist.
To qualify for phlebotomist technician jobs, candidates need a high school diploma or G.E.D. and post-secondary education. Phlebotomist technicians need either a certificate or diploma in order to start practicing. Phlebotomist technician jobs can be found at blood banks, doctor’s offices, hospitals or laboratories.
