in July was our phlebotomy course!! Big thanks to Lieba Rothstein for bringing in this incredible idea and service into the Bikur Cholim of the Five Towns and Far Rockaway. Our participants were trained within 6 hours by a certified nurse and are now part of our ever growing list of volunteers!!
They will go to the patients home to draw blood or perform therapeutic phlebotomy for certain diseases. This service is offered to the elderly, people who are ill, or people who are shut-in because of frailty, illness or incapacitation, removing the risks and stress associated with coming to a clinic or hospital.
If you are already a qualified nurse/technician and would like to join our Medical Task Force, please email us at here!
