Laboratory Assistant (Former Employee) – Ajax, ON – 16 January 2018
A typical day would be going around for all your patients and collecting blood samples. Once that's done you return to your department and receive your samples into the computer. Then you would take care of patients that come to the outpatient lab for blood work. Manage front desk by entering requisitions. You have to answer the pager when a department calls you for blood work. Or run to a code. Management was nice. The workplace culture was friendly I think, I had no problems. Co-workers are willing to help. The hardest part of the job was dealing with aggressive patients and patient overload in ER. The most enjoyable for me was receiving specimens, and packing the tote bags for pick up. I also liked chatting with the patients.
