The primary function of a Phlebotomist, also known as a Phlebotomy Technician, is the collection of blood samples from patients by venipuncture or micro-techniques.

Phlebotomy plays a key role in laboratory testing and patient care.
It is widely accepted that the quality of a laboratory test is only as good as the specimen that was collected.

Due to the need to be cost-effective, Phlebotomy has now become a specialized area of clinical laboratory practice. Although a hospital is a common place where a phlebotomy technician may work, clinics, acute care facilities as well as doctors offices, are also ideal places for a phlebotomist to work.

A Phlebotomy Technician’s responsibilities may include, but are not limited to the following:

*Performing venipunctures.
*Performing capillary draws.
*Transporting specimens to the laboratory.
*Professionally interact with patients treating patients with
empathy and compassion.
*Respecting a patient’s rights
*Recognizing the need for continuing education and staying
current in health care mandates.
