If at hospitals and emergencies there are no supervisors staying near licensed workers who take blood, can I win for bruises?

Brooklyn, NY |

And again the last time a was at emergency the person took my blood test. Does she have to know how to take blood test and avoid severe bruises to appear or the only thing they are taught in medical school that license is guaranteed, hospital is responsible not you, and practicing on dolls to draw a blood? I did a video of my bruised -heavily arm! This bruise stays for two weeks! f there are no supervisor next to worker who draws blood from me and severe bruises appear, can I sue for permanent assault? In other words, If licensed people bruising you different way isn't it the same as someone beat you up? This might be an important issue, because I believe that they do not know where to put needles exactly! What legal topic is this? Which court is this? Thank you!

  1. This would definitely not be a case worth pursuing, but you should complain to the administrator of the hospital if you believe the personnel taking your blood lacks the necessary skill.

  2. You seriously would spend your own money to file a lawsuit for bruises?
