Phlebotomist in Lancaster:
Pros: I get to help people
Cons: We’re under appreciated
Pros: I love meeting and connecting with the patients.
Cons: No room for advancement.
Pros: Love the interaction with the patients, get a lot of positive verbal feedback from patients in regards to my technical abilities and great caring. I haven't been in this profession very long and wish this was a line of work I had chosen for myself years ago.
Cons: I work alone and feel this job is greatly undervalued. Cannot visually see the work performance of their employee. I've been asking for a bleeding chair the 3rd month into working for the company and have yet to receive it. They want us to do self-evaluation work performance reviews on ourselves and ask how we can improve our work environments to make it more safe and efficient. I'd like to think they care for their employees but they don't hear us. Being alone, I have to deal with high-stress situations and fainters. All I want is a bleeding chair so I can place a bar across the front of the person, so if a situation arises where the patient faints and I have a needle in their arm it will prevent them from falling on the floor and cracking their head open. Not all patients admit to fainting, and I always ask if they would like to lay down if they are feeling anxious. My 1 year performance review is coming up and the same self-evaluation will be coming up. I feel invisible and not heard.
