MOORHEAD - Mississippi Delta Community College held its Phlebotomy Pinning Ceremony Tuesday, May 1, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. in the Greer-Stafford Allied Health Building on the Moorhead Campus. This was the second pinning for the one-semester program. Students participated in lectures and performed clinical rotations at Greenwood Leflore Hospital and Bolivar Medical Center.

Phlebotomy is the study or art of drawing blood for diagnosing and treating health problems or for blood donation. People who specialize in this study are called phlebotomy technicians. Phlebotomy technicians work in hospitals, clinics, blood banks, clinical laboratories and diagnostic centers. Phlebotomy technicians play an important role in health care. 

The primary job of a phlebotomy technician is to take blood samples from patients. The blood samples might be taken either for diagnosing illness or for blood donation. Blood analysis is one of the most important diagnostic tools available to medical clinicians, so it is vitally important that a blood sample is obtained in a way that does not compromise it in any way.

If more than one test has been ordered, blood collection tubes must be drawn in a very specific order, and the phlebotomist is responsible for knowing that order. Additionally, venipuncture is an invasive procedure that can be frightening or even painful to the patient if performed incorrectly.
