The Phlebotomist must consistently provide phlebotomy skills appropriate to the age and condition of the patient to minimize redraws (i.e., proper amounts, correct samples) and must strictly adhere to patient identification protocols as specified by regulatory requirements. This includes demonstrating knowledge of all patient safety precautions – such as isolations and safety devices.
In this role, is is important to have the ability to use independent judgment in following established venipuncture procedures along with having the ability to inspire confidence in and communicate effectively with unit secretaries, therapists, medical staff & visitors. This means demonstrating composure and organizational skills in handling crisis situations and effectively handling multiple tasks simultaneously in times of heavy workload.
