This morning I presented myself at Joondalup Blood Collection Centre for a blood sample extraction
This woman had dropped the venal apparatus onto the floor and she was about to use it on me; I said - Did you just drop that? Then she proceeded to show me the protective sleeve that was still on; I was still shocked then, and then she hesitated and asked if I wanted another one. I replied - Yes, please. The blood-letting procedure was completed.
I left the premises disgusted to how she handled the situation.
She wears gloves to protect herself but I am not being protected by her.
In my opinion, her hygiene practices are unacceptable and furthermore she did not dispose of the dropped apparatus appropriately whilst I was still in the room.
