Phlebotomist in Cleveland:
"Listen, and watch and learn."
My advice practice, palpating and find veins and interacting with the patient and asking the patient their pain level. Do not get frustrated and give up. Also anchor the vein down always. It takes time. Something do not learn overnight. It take time and patience. The first few years I was going to quit because I did not like drawing blood. I kept at drawing blood and learn from your experience. Remember patient is watching every move, from the time you call the patient back and sitting them down in the draw chair, the patient is always watching. Listen to the patient. And work with the patient. Have fun and it amazing how much impact in 5 min with the patient while drawing blood and very rewarding helping out the patient.
