Hannah Wright, Clinical Laboratory Assistant
I started at St. Joseph Hospital in 2014 as a member of the laboratory
team. My contribution is to collect samples from patients for analysis.
The data is essential for patient care as the physicians use lab results
as one of their tools for diagnosis. Some procedures can be uncomfortable
but I try to be conscientious and respectful of that. I slow down a bit
and talk to patients and let them ask questions. If I can make a difference,
even in a small way, in the tone or feeling our patients take away from
being in the hospital then that’s when I know I’m doing what
I was called to do.
