as a Phlebotomist

Phlebotomists draw blood for tests, transfusions, research, or blood donations. Phlebotomists work mainly in hospitals, medical and diagnostic laboratories, blood donor centers, and doctor’s offices. Employment of phlebotomists is projected to grow 27 percent from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. Almost all employers look for phlebotomists who have earned professional certification.

The Metropolitan Institute of Health and Technology teaches following typical skills that that are expected from a phlebotomist:

  • Draw blood from patients and blood donors
  • Talk with patients and donors so they are less nervous about having their blood drawn
  • Verify a patient or donor’s identity to ensure proper labeling
  • Label the drawn blood for testing or processing
  • Enter patient information into an onsite database
  • Assemble and maintain medical supplies such as needles, blood tubes, alcohol wipes and gauze
  • Properly dispose of biohazard waste as outlined by OSHA
