‘Appalled at treatment’

Dear Editor:

RE: Bad lab experience, March 11.

As a lab technician for almost 25 years at our local hospital, I was appalled at the treatment this little girl received.

I am assuming it was a private lab and not at our hospital lab as everyone at our hospital lab is very professional and very capable of carrying out a simple venipuncture procedure and would never treat a child or anyone this way.

The lab technician in question maybe needs to step back and reevaluate her choice in careers. To the young girl who suffered this traumatic experience, I am so sorry and you should have never had to endure such pain and emotional trauma.

I can only hope this does not cause you to fear any future medical procedures.
