Job Description for Medical Phlebotomist
Medical phlebotomists are members of the medical teams who collect samples of bodily fluids from patients for laboratory analysis for the diagnosis and monitoring of medical conditions. They generally work in hospital laboratories, physician offices, and outpatient laboratories. Medical phlebotomists generally collect blood samples from patients by venipuncture--using a needle to pierce the skin and obtain blood directly from a vein. They do this by first applying a tourniquet to the patient's arm, visually locating a vein, disinfecting the area, and inserting a needle into the vein to draw blood into the collection tube. The medical phlebotomist then properly labels, stores and sometimes transports the sample to the laboratory after collection for processing. They also often enter patient data into the computer at the laboratory for processing.
