"Very poor blood test experience"

I had a fasting blood test 10 days ago. The assistant nurse used large size needle and had to adjust the needle twice to get the blood going. My elbow joint was painful to move and black and blue still. They must have punctured the internal blood vessels and causing internal bleeding. Very poor blood taken technique and I will never want this happen to any one else.
