Quest Diagnostics Complaint - Stick It! - Blood Draw
I am appalled at the number of complaints of inhumane behavior exhibited by lab techs on this website. Let me add mine. There were only two other customers at this lab when I went in. A nice looking 30 something woman with her husband was crying and holding out her arm to the lab tech, saying he could try to draw again. He refused and told her to wait for some other employee. He wouldn't face me in the now near empty reception room. He was visibly an angry man. I tried to talk this guy down and like a fool, I let him draw my blood, against my better judgment. He didn't observe any safety protocols, doesn't follow rules. Then he jabbed me and poked so hard, that two veins were raised in my arm and a space of five inches antecubital was blackened for a week. Not discolored, blackened.
Called CSR, was treated like I had a lot of nerve, and then they reported my complaining to my doctor!!
