Needles Love Me

My phlebotomist at my OBGYN is awesome. It's a good thing because I see her at least once a week these days to test my platelets and make sure my Hepbrin is therapuetic.
While she was drawing my blood, I mentioned that I never feel the needle when she draws my blood.
She responded, "It's because we sharpen the needles when you come." 
Tender right? My phlebotomist sharpens needles so that it doesn't hurt to draw my blood. Dave spoke up and asked if they use dull forks for the patients they don't like and just let the blood drip into a bowl.  Yay for sharp needles

  1. How nice of them. The experience and attitude of the person drawing blood seems to make a difference too.
