Lab Tech Continues Education
The Lab Department at Cabinet Peaks Medical Center is eager to announce the achievement of technician, Bridgett Haskins, CPT, who recently passed the exam to become a Certified Phlebotomy Technician.
Phlebotomy Technicians are critical team members in hospitals, diagnostic laboratories, and blood donor centers. As new types of tests are developed and laboratory tech positions grow, it's an especially important to continue education.
When asked about the certification, Haskins, who has been with CPMC for 1 ½ years stated, "During my senior year of high school, I had the opportunity to intern at CHC in the lab. I enjoyed it and after graduation was able to start working at the hospital. With the experience and training they gave me, I was able to take and pass my exam to become certified. It was important to get certified to keep the job I love and to continue to serve the patients at CPMC."
Roger Riddle, Manager of the CPMC Lab explained, "All of us here in the Lab are very proud and pleased Bridgett has displayed the initiative to become a certified medical care giver. She has certainly displayed that she wants to provide professional, efficient patient care by completing this certification. The depth of information and amount of blood collecting skill sets that she has acquired through this certification, are a welcome addition to our great team here at Cabinet Peaks Medical Center."
