Video Transcript:
As a medical technologist at Bridgeport Hospital my job is to run blood samples from patients and to accurately report the results to the physicians. It combines my interest in science with my desire to help people. My name is Mary Damilowski and I have a career for life. The patient's treatment depends a lot on lab results. We are in charge in making sure that the test is accurate and able to run in a timely manner. Very often the physicians come to us with new tests that they've heard of. It is a developing field all the time so there is always something new. The new analyzer that we have received is dry chemistry. It is very neat and it is also much more accurate. You see the same names over and you see how their results develop. It makes you feel good when you see somebody doing better than they were yesterday. It is a good feeling in knowing that you took part in that and you helped make it happen. I am proud to be an employee of Bridgeport hospital. I have been here 23 years and many of the faces that I saw when I started are still here because it is a wonderful place to work. I think that I will be here for a long time. Careers for Life.
