We had an exciting week in the Lab at Madison Memorial Hospital, as we celebrated Medical Laboratory Professionals Week.
We kicked off the week by joining with The American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science, Virtual 5k. We gathered on the track Madison Jr. High on Monday night to walk and run our 5k… in Lab coats of course.
We had lab games going all week long- “Guess how many Pedi Tube in the beaker”, “What did the doctor order” and Chair races in the hall. We have some very fast and serious competitors in the Lab.
“The best dressed tube” and “Find the Golden Tube” were games shared with the whole hospital.
Jeneal and Cherie created a cute poster that was placed by the pneumatic tube systems throughout the hospital demonstrating how the analyzer would like the patient labels applied to blood tubes.
Every day we hid several special gold blood tubes around the hospital. When someone found the tube they returned it to the lab for a prize. It was very fun for us to have so many in the hospital participate in our game. We loved having so many come visit us.
Throughout the week we had lots of food and fun! So many in the lab took part in organizing, contributing, making food and playing games, etc. That is why Lab week 2018 was such a success.
The very best part about lab week was how it brought us closer together.
We are a more unified team in the Lab at Madison Memorial Hospital waiting to help you!
