Transcript: Names of Bacteria on Petri Dish Blood Agar Plate (Sheep) CLINICAL LABORATORY ASSISTANT II Final Results The main purpose of the Microbiology lab is to grow culture on patients so that MD can give the quickest and most accurate care to the patients. The most used equipements is the incubators followed by the Vitech machine. The Vitech Machine is used for Microbial identification and antibiotic susceptibility. In November of 1967, the community of King County voted to build a hospital, and in 1972 Evergreen General Hospital, a small 76- bed facility, opened to the public of Bothell, Kenmore, Kirkland, and Redmond. Throughout the years, Evergreen General Hospital slowly expanded, adding multiple wings, a new Emergency Department, a hospice center, and finally in 2012 as part of a re-branding, Evergreen General Hospital was re-named to Evergreen Health Medical Center, becoming the hospital that we all know and love. The person that I interviewed is an employee at Evergreen Health Medical Center whose job title is Clinical Laboratory Assistant II. The laboratory is the life blood of the hospital. Doctors send in specimens with only ideas of the patient's diagnosis; it is up to the lab to properly test and record the results to ensure the patient gets the best care possible. The best thing that new hires can do is to ask questions. There are going to be a lot of new things and you will never know until you ask, so don't be afraid to! Job Duties and Responsibilities: Process and set up each specimen that comes through the lab from both in and out patient clinics Set up the proper test based on what the doctor ordered Ensure specimens are properly collected on the correct media and, Set up for optimal growth so that the technicians can read the specimens Transparent and open Communication Fast pace environment Everyone is assigned to specific task to make working smoother Saying “Thank you” Giving feedback and be open to feedback. One of the most important requirements for this field is critical thinking. You have to be quick to interpret what the doctor is looking for based on their clinic and the type of specimen that you receive. Working Environment This number increases depending on experience and qualifications. RATE OF PAY Among many awards given for the exceptional care provided, Evergreen Health is the only hospital in Washington to be awarded five stars from Medicare, and is ranked among the top 100 hospitals in America. Evergreen Health is also renowned for the exceptional benefits given to employees, the many health incentives, and the positive work environment, making Evergreen Health an amazing team to be apart of. Clinical Lab Assistant Advise to New CLA's Without a bachelors degree of science, starting pay as a Clinical Lab Assistant II in Washington state is around $16.10. Hands on Project in the Microbiology Lab S. Epidermis & E. Faecalis For the past five years Evergreen Health has been awarded for clinical excellence which is a huge accomplishment considering the lab processes anywhere from 3000-4000 tests a day!

Transcript: Neurological Consultation The patient is an 83-year old right handed female, that is complaining about balance and coordination issues. Recent symptoms Additional follow-up imaging was performed on 8/3/2016. The MRI showed two additional mass' measuring 3.1cm x 2.2cm and the other 8-9mm. Cabergoline is used for: Treating disorders associated with high levels of the hormone prolactin, either due to tumors in the pituitary gland or to unknown causes. The patient reports that she has had: weakness of her left leg. pain in the right arm. back pain. numbness/tingling in the arms. difficulty walking. Levothyroxine: Uses, Dosage, Side Effects. (n.d.). Retrieved February 27, 2017, from https://www.drugs.com/levothyroxine.html Clinical Lab Correlations Plan of Action She also had abnormal lab work. In the course of her workup they did an MRI of the brain and discovered she had a tumor. A pituitary tumor has expansion of the sella with appearance suggestive of a macroadenoma. The smaller subcentimeter rounded enhancing mass is causing edema, has hemorrhagic changes and a small subdural hemorrhage. Macroadenoma measuring 1.7x1.4x2.2 Prolactin average 5.2-26.5 ng/ml Her prolactin was 32.2 ng/ml Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) 0.5 to 4.0 mlU/L Her TSH was 4.6 mlU/L Levothyroxine is a thyroid medicine that replaces a hormone normally produced by your thyroid gland to regulate the body's energy and metabolism. Levothyroxine is given when the thyroid does not produce enough of this hormone on its own. The pituitary gland secretes thyrotropin (TSH; Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) that stimulates the thyroid to secrete thyroxine (T4) and, to a lesser degree, triiodothyronine (T3). Illnesses REFERENCES Future Timeline Cabergoline: Indications, Side Effects, Warnings. (n.d.). Retrieved February 27, 2017, from https://www.drugs.com/cdi/cabergoline.html She has had: high blood pressure kidney disease urinary/bladder problems arthritis allergies spine injury Present illness The doctor explained to her and the family that he would like to hold off on surgery at this time. He wants to start her on cabergoline and levothyroxine and keep an eye on it. The larger mass has the appearance and location that is most compatible to a benign meningioma. After the new findings, the patient consulted with the Doctor on 9/30/2016 regarding stereotactic radiation. The patients case was presented at tumor board, and the consensus was that she proceed with radiation. Interestingly, the planning brain MRI 10/12/16 showed resolution of the right temporal lobe lesion and no new lesions. She is doing well and wants to decrease her medications. Approximately 3 years prior she fell off a ladder in her bathroom. She hit her head, had headaches, dizziness, impaired balance and coordination. 7 months later her prolactin went from 32.2ng/ml to 1.2ng/ml History

I could see myself doing this in the future because it has a good, flexible hour times and you can work around the clock easily. Not to mention there is a decent pay although you have to go to about four years of college to receive good advancement. when i chose this career i believed it was working for working with computers and such but this doesn't differ much. Clinical Lab Tech's seems to be a good choice for me because I prefer the high tech they do for the job, so i will consider it.

Transcript: We took notice into Ms. Dawn's physical characteristics and took ion test such as: Chloride, Sulfate, Phosphate, and Na/K ions. We used "Dipsticks" to test our results for Urobilinogen, Protein, pH, Specific Gravity and Keytone. Test #2 The purpose of the Urinalysis test was to examine Mrs. Dawn urine to see diagnostic information about the biochemical processes occurring in her body. We tested pH, Specific Gravity, Keytones, Protein and Urobilinogen. Results: By: Brielle, Anna, & Brandon After completing all required test on Mrs. Dawn, we have come to the diagnosis of kidney damage. She had high Ck levels and protein in her urine which indicates tissue damage as well. Kinetics lab Urinalysis Test Pictures Urinalysis Test Test different enzymes in a sample Enzymes are biological catalyst Spectroscopy Creatine Kinase Lactate dehydrogenase Glucose Determination Test About Mrs. Dawn The purpose of this test is to see if there is a presence of glucose in Mrs. Dawns urine. We used a enzyme based glucometer, Clinistix, and One Touch Ultra Test Strips to calculate the presence of glucose in a blood sample. Through the series of tests, we came to the conclusion that Mrs. Dawn does have hyperglycemia which is something we will have to keep in mind during future testing. Patient #2: Jaysha Dawn Jaysha is a 25 year old female African American. Her height is 5 feet 2 inches, and weighs in at 120 pounds.Her symptoms are fatigue, increased urination and swelling of feet and legs. Her blood pressure was recorded as 185/95, which indicates hypertension. Urinalysis Test Glucose Determination Test Kinetics Graph
