Cath Lab Tech Spotlight
Jeffrey, Aya Cath Lab Tech
A large hospital bought out the facility I worked at for 30+ years. So, I “retired” and started traveling.
My first assignment was in Munster, Indiana. It’s a great area, 20-25 minutes from Chicago, 40 minutes from Michigan and an hour from Wisconsin. I took it because it was the first job I was offered, and I was nervous it would be hard to find jobs. But it hasn’t been hard at all.
As far as moving between hospitals, not much is different about the actual cath lab tech job. There are little differences here and there, but with a day or two of training, you can pretty much jump right in.
What I like most about cath lab, no matter where I am, is that it’s a new patient every hour or two and every patient is different. Even if it’s the same procedure over and over, there’s always something a little different about it. When you help save somebody, help stop somebody from having a heart attack or a stroke it’s very rewarding.
The cath lab tech job has changed dramatically in my 33 years. I used to have to go to the darkroom to develop x-rays. There have been more changes than you can imagine. There were things on my last certification that weren’t even invented when I was in school. I’ve stayed because I enjoy it.
And I like traveling because you can learn from anybody and everybody. Like John Wooden said, “It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts.”
