Detailed Course on Becoming A Phlebotomy Technician
Phlebotomy techs draw blood samples from patients. They may work in a variety of different capacities to collect these blood samples, but this is always their main task. Another major part of their job is to prepare the blood samples for a variety of different tests and procedures.
Phlebotomy techs have the ability to work well with patients and to keep them calm. They explain procedures to patients and provide a calm and trusting environment as they draw the blood. Since many patients are apprehensive when they get their blood drawn, having a good personality is an important and often overlooked aspect of a Phlebotomy tech.
