The Roles And Responsibilities of Phlebotomy Jobs

Phlebotomists, or phlebotomy technicians, are professionals that draw blood from patients. They also take the blood samples to be passed on to a laboratory for further checks on health issues such as bacteria, diseases, cholesterol and more. The wonderful thing about selecting a career as a phlebotomist is that you have the ability to work in a number of different types of medical facilities, from private laboratories to hospitals.

Phlebotomist Job Description

This is a field that can be both fun and rewarding, as you will meet a range of new people on a daily basis. When you are a phlebotomist, you will be responsible for taking blood from patients, then delivering it for testing. You need to expect that you will be taking blood samples from babies, kids, young adults and the elderly alike. Depending on where it is that you work, you may see one particular age group over another.
