Well I want to know if I can refuse to make my baby have to go through being stuck yet again for them to have to get blood work from her after this Medical Assistant stuck herself after giving my 17 month old baby a vaccine. They are telling me that I have to go and have her blood taken because this happened to this Assistant. They already tried to take my babies blood twice there at the clinic stating that it was something they had to do to make sure that this assistant wouldn't catch anything...but they were unable to get any blood, and are now telling me that I have to take my already traumatized infant to the hospital to get her blood drawn after she has already been stuck with needles 7 times today after 5 shots and 2 attempts at getting blood. I am very upset that this has happened.
Oh, great.. Thank you very much I appreciate all of your help, that is what I needed to know. Thank you
