Professional Experience
Lafayette General Medical Center - CLS-Generalist
City, STATE, 09/2015 - 08/2016
I began my time at LGMC assigned to the night shift. I would rotate between chemistry, hematology, blood bank and microbiology. In chemistry, I was responsible for nightly maintenance and quality control as well as running patient samples. I worked with the Siemens Vista and Centaur. Hematology encompassed CBC's, Coagulation and Urinalysis.  I worked with the Sysmex, the Cellavision, the Atlas, the UF1000 and the Stago. In Blood Bank I used the Gel-card method. LGMC is the area's main trauma one site and I would often have to report to the ER with a cooler stocked with emergency release transfusion products. In Microbiology I was charged with the rapid tests and PCR's. I also set up cultures and stained and read gram stains. I moved to the evening shift and I worked eight days on and six days off. Wherever I was scheduled I was responsible for maintenance and quality control as well as patient samples. I also attended monthly laboratory meetings and quarterly employee forums.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
Touro Infirmary - CLS-Generalist
City, STATE, 10/2006 - 05/2012
I spent my first two and a half years at Touro working the night shift. I was responsible for receiving, checking, labeling, running and reporting all samples coming into the laboratory. I alternated between chemistry and hematology. I transferred to the day shift for the remainder of my time there where the workload was increased and we processed over 700 samples per day. I accurately recorded and reported test results according to established procedures. I performed highly complex tests on clinical specimens for diagnostic purposes. I recorded known control values from technical instruments to ensure reliability and accuracy in test results reporting. I demonstrated testing procedures and equipment to new laboratory personnel and students.
West Jefferson Medical Center - CLS-Generalist
City, STATE, 11/2004 - 11/2005
At WJMC I worked various shifts in each area of the clinical laboratory. I correctly prepared laboratory equipment and instrumentation required for tests, process or quality control. I developed and maintained positive customer relationships through effective communication. I neatly and accurately completed all required SOP documentation in accordance with set guidelines. I was an integral part of the team before, during and in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Terrebonne General Medical Center - CLS-Generalist
City, STATE, 07/1993 - 10/2000
My time at Terrebonne General was spent working day shift in Hematology. I rotated every third weekend. On weekends I worked extra shifts in the evening and I rotated from Hematology to Chemistry. I also worked extra weekends that were not originally assigned to me. When time and workload allowed, I would go into Microbiology where I would assist with various duties. I plated positive blood cultures, set up and read E tests, prepared ID and sensitivity cards for the Vitek and plated new specimens. I also read and reported gram stains.
Lady Of The Sea Hospital - CLS-Generalist

This was my first position as a Medical Technologist upon graduation. A small facility so it was not uncommon for me to have to collect and prepare as well as test and report patient samples. I became proficient in Hematology and Coagulation. Also Chemistry, Blood Bank and Microbiology. Recorded known control values from technical instruments to ensure reliability and accuracy in test results reporting.
