Here are some things you probably didn't know about phlebotomy. Let's start by going back in time in in Ancient Roman, Greek and Egyptian times removing blood from the body was considered a way to rid the body of evil spirits or illness. In addition phlebotomy isn't just for humans, veterinary offices draw blood to run tests on various animals. Something else you maybe didn't know, in early days phlebotomists were also barbers. The red white and blue barber pole is symbolic of drawing blood. Around the same time.
Phlebotomy procedures were referred to as quot;breathing a veinquot; and blood was drawn from larger veins in the neck or forearms. Another historical phlebotomy fact, quot;bloodlettingquot; was brought to the US by the pilgrims. They would draw blood from a patient until they began to feel faint. Furthermore, George Washington actually died from a botched bloodletting, when 9 pints of blood were drawn from him in attempts to cure a throat infection.

Hi my name is Donna. I'm a sterile processing technician here at Southwest Washington Medical Center. I began working here about 3 months ago. So I'm still technically in training. I really like it here. There's something different every day. Sterile processing is the main part of the hospital. Without sterile processing, the hospital would cease to exist.
This is a very important part of the overall picture. There are so many different aspects to sterile processing. I might be putting up instrument pans one day, the next day I might be sterilizing, I might be working in decontamination. Each day is different. So it doesn't get boring. This is my fashion statement. I have blue boots.
