Joe Biotech........What's This?

I love stuff like this........and if you are a victim of a poorly trained phlebotomist, you'll like this even more.....it's a vein finder! If you live near the Memphis-based Methodist Le Bonheur Hospitals you're in luck. In February, they became the first institution to begin wide-spread use of this new technology. Here's the press release . . .

I am the type of person that needs this. Whenever they try to draw blood from me, it takes about four tries, and after that, I call the nurse incompetent, or I just get out of there.

Part of my job for five years was phlebot... And I was a fair stick, I'd say! :D

This is really cool, but I think that folks should still be trained to function without it. Plus, it doesn't help you know how deep to go! It's all about the FEEL.

Of course, when I tell a noob how/where to draw from me, I get looked at like I'm a FREAK, or a IV drug user... LOL!
