Patients receiving any kind of treatment, whether it be chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or gynecological cancer treatment, will have their blood drawn by a phlebotomist. This has done to verify that their bodies are responding to the medication properly. The patient is healthy enough to start their treatment for the day. After labs are done on their blood. It is my duty as a medical assistant to take the patient's vitals. This includes their weight, their blood pressure, and heart rate. This is one of the most important duties I have.
