Long story short is that my mother has been in poor health over the last ten years or so. She has had cancer three times and two years ago she landed up in intensive care after she could not stop vomiting up blood. She has been employed through the duration of her illness but understandly has been off sick for various period throughout. She has now left her job as a nurse and has got a new one as a phlebotomist. Problem is she is extremely nervous about it and has asked me for help. Me being my usual smart ass self said that it was easy and will come over and tell her the basics to get her through her training.
Problem! I thought by a simple search on google I could find all I needed and could blag my way unfortunately I was wrong.
I want to help my mum because she doesnt want to feel or look stupid. its really important to me that she starts her new job feeling confident and happy.
The only thing I can find is that a phlebotomist needs to be friendly and would beneficially have a few GCSE’s yadda yadda yadda. I think what she wanted me to tell her was what the basic things you need to know are. e.g what colour needle gets used for different testing.
Basically I’m looking for what basics she will need to know and if anyone can direct me to any good info sites.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
