I went to the hospital to have some bloods taken after recent symptoms. I had the bloods taken in outpatients, and left the necessary forms with the phlebotomists.
When I rang up for the blood results, the blood vials had not been labelled, and so consequently, pathology didn't know whose bloods they were - a morning taken off work wasted, and now I have to go to have them repeated! Very frustrating and delaying the process.
