Hi..everyone.. Hope everyone is having a gentle day. I wanted to ask a how you guys feel about nurses and medical professionals who don't seem to have the mitus touch.
I had to have blood work done for my new doctor which was no issue. Been done many times. So I go in and I alert the tech / nurse that I have bAD veins and its best to get the blood from my left hand. She then proceeds to stick me everywhere but where I've told her is best to get my blood from. Veins blew misses veins.
Etc. The last time she stuck ( which she only tried twice) she attempted to draws from the top of my right hand near the wrist. I was in tremendous pain. I was trying g to be nice and not scream out until I realizes that was dumb.. So I screamed and told her it hurt. So she then snatched the needle out and said " your gonna have to go to the hospital to get this done. My hand was covers in blood. She did apologize. But I was done.
So I get to the hospital and the nurse there ask what happened so I told her and I also told her bout
My fibro. She then began to immediately change and soften her approach ( keep in mind this nurse was already being nice she was at the hospital) but once she find out she said oh my its painful to touch u not to mention sticking a needle in u. I agreed and smiled. She looked at the area the first nurse stuck me and said she had stuck me in the bone. U could still see where the needle path was in my hand. She had to redress it and gave me care Instruction. She them told her coworkers she was gonna be here for a while. She took her time and was very caring. All this was two days ago. My hand still hurts and my finger ache even more then Normal.
So..my question is..how do u guys fe about filing complaints on medical staff? On one side I think its a human being maybe she had a bad day? I'm sure she needs her job. I don't want to mess up any bodies wellbeing and way of life. However I Also don't want to deal with this nurse again. I like the doctor and he has several other nurses who are great. If it was the doctor that was the problem I would just change doctors I've done that before . What do u think is the best way to handle this?
