During the first week of my clinical rotation I was assigned to the emergency room (ER). On the first day of the clinical I had the opportunity to insert a catheter and start and IV in a patient. I was successful in doing this procedure and I was able to insert a second catheter in another patient and I was able to draw blood from another patient. These were skill that I had not preformed up to this point.
Secondly, I used safety during medication administration. My preceptor and I would pull up one patient at a time when taking out medications. I also
Phlebotomy, otherwise known as bloodletting, is an ancient tactic to help cure people of disease. A future research topic to probe into would be to find an alternative way to rid of
d) Setting out procedures When setting out for procedure its done in two stages in our practice. First is initial setting of the instruments and materials before patient enter room. All (chair, spittoon, work tops...) is wipe down with disinfectant wipes and then set up instrument tray with some cotton wool rolls, articulation paper and 3 in 1 tip on little table on the side the chair handy for clinician. This table is moveable and can be set in desirable position. Hand pieces and local anaesthetic syringe with needle are place on the stationary table in the reach of clinical in the case she may need them.

LPN’s have several duties they need to do.
While in the room I gave the blood draw specimen box to RN Anglea Wynn. She opened the box and removed the contents. I removed the right cuff from Mr. Defalco’s arm so blood could be taken. She used the betadine in the box to clean the area where the blood would be taken. At 4:29 a.m. blood was drawn, RN Wynn placed the blood in the tubes provided in the box.
For my career, I am going with CNA, EKG, and Phlebotomy. The reason I picked these for my career is because I like to help people. Knowing I can make a difference in the world by doing something as simple as helping a patient eat or take their blood for a blood test they need done is amazing knowing you’re the one helping them. Not many people realize how much work a nurse does for a living. We have to make sure that we don’t fall behind on work because it will mess the other nurses up.

They use machines that are specifically designed for one thing and if it does not work then the next step is unknown. In this society they “get these cases nine or ten a night.” (Bradbury, 13), meaning the calls are regularly about someone overdosing. Therefore “this machine pumped all of the blood from the body and replaced it with fresh blood and serum.” (Bradbury 12) because “you take out the old and put in the new and you're okay.”
In a 1923 medical textbook bloodletting was still a recommended cure. There were four main ways to bloodlet. The first was leeches. The second, a process called an arteriotomy. This consisted of puncturing and bleeding the arteries in the temples.
I work as a Laboratory Technician Assistant/Phlebotomist. We work alongside with the medical technologists by helping them with some of the lab duties. My work includes verifying patient’s identity, determine a convenient vein on the patient’s arm, select the appropriate tubes, and draw blood from the patient for lab tests. I’m also responsible for making lab appointments when necessary and order lab tests issued by providers. I receive and distribute specimens to the appropriate departments in the lab.
