"Irresponsible blood taker at Holt Park"

Posted by Charlie Royal (as ),
I am the partner of a Warfarin taker.
Last Weds, my partner went to the clinic for the usual blood taking. Previous day she had the blood check at her Doctors. This left a thumbnail size bruize of no concern to anyone.
The woman taking the blood had a clear arm to go at but chose to enter where the bruise was and also failed to ensure it had stopped bleeding before my partner left the clinic.
Her arm swelled up to twice it's size and I found it necessary to go to A&E because we were so concerned about her condition, both visual and how she felt.
She had blood taken at A&E by the most considerate of people who assured her there would be no problem when she took it.
Visited Ward 27 three times blood taken - no problem.
I feel this woman needs to be removed from the system. After my partners experience, we both consider her to be consider her to be incompetent and inconsiderate. It is possible she has bad eyesight or wears glasses but had forgotten them on this occasion.
I would like to see something done please.
