Responsibilities

Job Summary

Performs moderately complex to highly complex and specialized clinical laboratory tests/analyses using manual or automated techniques to obtain data for use in the diagnosis, management and treatment of disease/injury. Specific areas of accountability may include one, or a combination of, the following disciplines: transfusion service, microbiology, chemistry, coagulation, hematology, immunology, and urinalysis. Work includes 1) pretesting and processing samples, 2) performing, analyzing, interpreting, and confirming tests, 3) documenting and delivering timely test results and 4) operating and maintaining standard Lab instrumentation and equipment.

Given the critical importance of test results to patient care and clinical outcomes, an incumbent is accountable for ensuring the accuracy of test results and related analyses based on adherence to established standards, procedures and regulatory requirements for test analysis, quality control, quality assurance, safety, blood-borne pathogen/infection control, specimen handling/processing and documenting/reporting patient results. While controls may affect certain decision -making opportunities, an incumbent is expected to exercise sound judgment to monitor, control, and assess tests conditions, specimen quality, chemical/biologic reactions, and instrument function. An MLT is expected to seek advice from a Tech-in-Charge or an MT when the ability to resolve a problem is limited by training or experience.

Work requires knowledge of the major disciplines of laboratory practice (e.g. blood bank, chemistry, hematology, coagulation, immunology, urinalysis, and microbiology). An incumbent applies knowledge of scientific principles and theory to determine the causes or possible significance of abnormalities and departures from the norm when test results do not conform to expectations.

Incumbents are also accountable for: 1) meeting technical training requirements, 2) maintaining awareness of procedure changes, 3) updating knowledge, skills and applying those competencies, and 4) following department standards for excellence.

Performs pretesting and processing samples (Pre-Analytic).

Evaluates and reports patient results for use in the diagnosis and treatment of disease for patients of all ages (Post-Analytic).

One year of clinical laboratory experience in the last five years is preferred.

Licensure/Certification:

National Registration as an MLT(ASCP)CM, MLT(ASCP) or equivalent (e.g. AMT), or registry-eligible at date of hire. If not already held, national certification must be obtained within six months of date of hire.

Depending on assignment, current certification through Washington State as a Medical Assistant-Phlebotomy may be required. Where applicable, certification as a Medical Assistant-Phlebotomy must be obtained within eight (8) weeks of assignment.
