Posted on: September 16, 2023

Job Description:

We can't do it without YOU!

Do you want to apply your experience, skills and education in a way that makes a meaningful and lasting difference in the lives of our patients and their families? At Tennessee Cancer Specialists, it is the privilege of our employees to walk with our patients and their families as they move along the journey of fighting cancer. Whether you are working directly with patients in one of our clinics or in a support role, you are an important part of our mission to deliver the highest quality, compassionate care. Our 200+ employees make up the teams at our 15 different East Tennessee locations and have helped us achieve the Top Workplaces award two years running for the greater Knoxville area!

As an Admixture Technician, you will mix and provide our nursing staff with the sterile IV infusion treatments for our patients who are being treated in our outpatient infusion clinic.

Here's what might happen on a typical day---

This role is unique because it requires the special skillset of being able to mix sterile IV infusions according to all applicable safety and quality standards. Your mixing skills combined with your patient focused mindset make you an important member of the outpatient infusion team.

While guidance of our chemotherapy nurses as well as our Pharmacists is always available, you will work fairly independently. Being proactive in keeping up with all applicable quality and medication standards will allow you to be a successful Admixture Technician. You know when to ask questions, and we highly encourage you to do so. Your meticulous attention to detail is vital to our patients.

Experiences that matter---

You have a pharmacy knowledge that allows you to quickly learn compounding and mixing to accurately admix drugs in a timely manner as ordered by a physician.
When checking orders and calculating correct dosage volumes, your attention to detail will be a major asset.
You will use your organization skills to properly log and date inventory, maintain proper control documents, and ensure drug supplies are in adequate supply.
Experience with navigating Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems and knowledge of USP 800 standards will allow you to quickly adapt to the workflow of this position.
Your go-getter work ethic will have you ready to jump in and help out with any additional tasks.

For your safety, keep this in mind:

This position will require standing and walking for extended periods of time.
Any lifting should be limited to 40 pounds or less.
You will need manual dexterity, proper hand-eye coordination, full range of motion to possibly assist with lifting patients, and corrected vision and hearing to normal range.

We feel this position requires these basics:

A high school diploma or equivalent is required along with a Certified Pharmacy Technician certification and/or State Pharmacy Board licensure. (Tack on an IV certification for bonus points!)
You will have at least one year of Pharmacy Technician experience.
IV mixing is a plus but can be taught to a candidate with your initiative.

EOE/M/F/D/V/SO. We are a Drug-free Workplace.
