Medicine is a vast and complex field with a variety of people from different fields come together to work towards saving lives every day. While there are the main stream people who get the well deserved credit for their hard work such as doctors and nurses, there are also people working behind the scene to ensure that you get the best care that you can get. These are the lab assistants and technicians who work tirelessly for long hours and lesser pay just to make sure your diagnosis and treatment is accurate. These people have a job with extremely high stakes because they are responsible for what and how a patient will be treated, the mistake of getting that wrong would mean that the doctors will not be able to correctly diagnose what is wrong with a patient and will end up giving then the wrong treatment.
This makes it evident how important it is for these people to be appropriately trained and educated on what their job is all about. These professionals have to go through lab assistant school in order to qualify for the job. They receive extensive training on all the procedures that they need to be aware of and are tested to make sure they are the best of the best so that they can play their part in making sure that the healthcare system can keep on functioning and saving lives with the utmost accuracy that is required when the life of a person is in your hands.
Lab assistants do not receive the due credit and recognition that they deserve as health care professionals.
