forgot what i was gonna
oh wait i remember now,
that feel when, a student knows how to extract blood better than a doctor
tfw a patient thinks a doctor's are better in extracting blood, than med techs
i find this relatively funny >.>...
i mean, to be honest, some nurses/doctors actually, lowkey dont know how to extract blood from patient, they know other stuff, like diagnosing the disease, but extraction is, kind of hard for them ?
unless that specific doctor studied extraction atleast, but from my time in the hospital, some of those doctors aint really a professional in extraction of blood
major respect for those doctors that have "RMT, MD." in their names tho', that generally means they are doctors, and a registered scientist >.>
in which case, that also means they are hella professional in blood extraction, aside from being able to diagnose disease's

I've seen some RN do it very rarely, when the patient is combative and it becomes too much a risk for a phlebotomist who may not be trained to handle them. Or at the very least they are present to intervene if necessary. Had a patient last week who was extremely combative and kept pulling his IVs out and attempting to stab the RN with them and it was making it impossible for the phlebotomist to get a draw.
